New Healthcare market report from Business Monitor International: "Uzbekistan Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report Q4 2014"

[ClickPress, Mon Oct 13 2014] We expect Uzbekistan ' s healthcare spending to continue outpacing the country ' s economic growth, creating opportunities for most health industries over the medium term. This is illustrated by mounting spending in medical technologies and equipment on the back of the upgrading and construction of healthcare facilities . I ncreasin g pharmac eutical demand has also been driven by private consumption growth and rising exports to neighbour ing countries . Meanwhile, the Uzbek president 's recent decree aimed at improving Uzbekistan ' s World Trade Organization ( WTO ) accession bid signals an additional effort to attract foreign investment. O ngoing regulatory amendments to facilitate the state registration of firms with foreign capital to operate in Uzbekistan also demonstrate this . However, Uzbekistan ' s pharmaceutical and healthcare spending per-capita is still low, albeit rising . In addition, pro-local industry regulatory bias, stringent capital controls and poor governance will continue to drag down the market attractiveness in the medium term.
