A delegation of the Association PhRMA (Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America), which represents the major pharmaceutical companies activating in the field of biotechnology in the United States, was received this morning by the Minister of Health and Population Hospital Reform, Abdelmalek Boudiaf.

According to a ministry statement, the two sides discussed the development of partnership in the field of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and implementation of early actions which contribute to the creation of a biotechnology cluster in Algeria (Algeria Vision 2020 Project ). We are therefore in the active phase of this mega project unique of its kind in North Africa and the second in Africa.

Not only because the US praised the "University resources" of the country and its implementation "geographical" which are all key factors in the success of their investments.
