JSC «Valenta Pharm», which stood at the origins of the foundation of the Association of Russian Pharmaceutical Manufacturers (ARPM), is renewing its membership in the Association since 2021.

Much of what the creators of the ARPM thought and dreamed about almost 20 years ago has come true, but the realities and challenges of modern life require new solutions.
“The return of «Valenta» to the Association of Russian Pharmaceutical Manufacturers is an important and significant event for ARPM. We are united by a common understanding of the industry development strategy in Russia, common views on the issues on the Russian market, and, most importantly, an understanding of ways to solve them. I am sure that with the participation of «Valenta», the Association will not only become weightier, but will also be able to more effectively solve the problems facing the industry,” said Victor Dmitriev, ARPM General Director.
“The entry of «Valenta Pharm» JSC into the Association will allow us to directly participate in the development of decisions related to the development of the Russian pharmaceutical industry, to promote the introduction and protection of the principles of free and fair competition, and to improve the drug circulation market in Russia.
