During the fall of 2020, a team of specialists in various areas of business from Microkhim participated in training sessions organized by the USAID Economic Support to Eastern Ukraine Project. The purpose of the training was to provide the company’s specialists with the knowledge necessary to create a business development strategy for the next five years.
The USAID Project engaged experts from the international consulting company Roland Berger to advise on strategy development.
The strategy developed within the project envisages a significant increase in sales of Microkhim medicines on the Ukrainian market and entry into the markets of the European Union.
“We are currently developing up to thirty new medicines – tablets, sprays, injections. In the future, we plan to invest in the development of new drugs, development of production and new capacity, – says the company’s CEO Igor Pogromsky. – Given the ambitious development plans, we are constantly training people – both leading professionals and management. Our employees take part in specialized courses to improve production processes in the pharmaceutical industry. In the future, it is strategically interesting for us to enter the European market. This is a new challenge and new opportunities – for this we need to pass European certification. During the strategic training sessions, we learned what medicines may be of interest to the European market, we will move in that direction. ”
The USAID Project plans to continue its cooperation with Microkhim in 2021 and to promote the implementation of its strategy,” said Oleh Myroshnichenko, Head of Production and Business Internationalization of the USAID Project.
