EBRD supports manufacturer of intravenous fluids in Uzbekistan

AKIPRESS.COM - The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and Uzbekistan’s second-largest lender, Uzpromstroybank (UzPSB), are providing new funds to support and strengthen local manufacturers of medical goods in order to meet growing market demand during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The EBRD will finance 50 per cent of a €7.82 million loan provided by UzPSB to local medical producer Samarkand England Eco-Medical (SEEM). This will be the first transaction under a 50:50 risk-sharing framework signed between the two banks.

SEEM, which manufactures intravenous fluids such as sodium chloride, glucose and amino acids, will use the loan to expand its production facility and to start manufacturing generic and specialised medicines in tablets and capsules.
