India is one of the largest manufacturers and exporters of generic medicines across the world

New Delhi:15/10/20: Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers Shri DV Sadananda Gowda has said India is one of the largest manufacturers and exporters of generic medicines across the world. During the initial phase, he said, HCQ and Azithromycin were identified as one of the medicines under treatment protocol for covid-19 in emergency cases. Referring to India supplying these medicines to more than 120 countries across the world; he underlined that India thereby earned the reputation of a reliable supplier of medicines.

Shri Gowda informed that India is the only country with the largest number of US-FDA-compliant Pharma plants (more than 262 including APIs) outside of the USA with exports of $ 20 billion worth of pharma products to various countries including high standards complying countries like US and Europe.

Shri Gowda stressed that there is a need for collaboration for the development of alternative fertilisers for example nano fertilisers, which can reduce our requirement/ usage of fertilisers, and hence dependence on imports. I would welcome any feedback on my proposal for joint R & D collaboration for development of alternate fertilisers.
