DRAP issues licences to 636 herbal companies


Drugs Regulatory Authority Pakistan (DRAP) has issued 636 liceces to different local and multinational companies, and it will increase export of medicines, especially herbal, from the country in the years to come. Pakistan has been earning around $1.5 billion annually through export of herbal medicines, which could be raised five times if the local companies are patronised and promoted and issued licences.
These views were expressed by President of Pharmaceutical Lawyers Forum and renowned pharmacist Noor Mehar Advocate in an exclusive talk with APP here on Sunday. He said that the volume of Indian export of herbal medicines was around $45 billion, which was double of its allopathy medicines export.—APP
