Kenya clears 11 Iranian firms to exports drugs to East African nation
Kenya has paved the way for 11 Iranian pharmaceutical firms to export their products to the East African country.
Following coordination made by Iran’s embassy to Nairobi and the Iran House of innovation and Technology (iHiT), Kenya’s Ministry of Health issued certifications for 11 Iranian companies active in the health and medical care sector to export their products.
The certifications have been issued following consultations between the Kenyan Ministry of Health and Iranian pharmaceutical companies.
Given the enormous medicine market in Kenya, it is expected that this cooperation would end up in the economic growth of the Iranian pharmaceutical industry as well as a bigger share of Iranian knowledge-based firms in eastern Africa.
This achievement indicates the technical capabilities and high quality of the Iran-made products as well as President Ebrahim Raisi administration’s determination to improve scientific and technical cooperation with developing countries, particularly in Africa.
