The PanHellenic Union of Pharmaceutical Industry (PEF) represents the domestic pharmaceutical manufacturers in Greece, which develop and produce mainly branded generics in 26 production units, strictly meeting the high quality EMA and FDA standards. During the past decade, the Greek pharmaceutical industry has been implementing major investment programs in infrastructure and in process / quality control systems. To this purpose PEF’s main goals are to develop and maintain constructive dialogues with the EU institutions in order to understand and participate in policy developments that affect and impact the Greek pharmaceutical industry. Furthermore PEF would like to discuss solutions to improve the quality of life for patients and to strengthen the competitiveness of the Greek pharmaceutical industry on a European level.
The Panhellenic Union of Pharmaceutical Industry actively follows legislative files discussed in the European Parliament Committee. Currently there are no files that are being discussed specifically affecting our interests. We try to keep up to date with EU Funding Initiatives and attend as far as possible info days and events supported or organized by the Commission. Policies which are of interest to us deal with taxation, employment, research and development and innovation for SMEs.
The PanHellenic Union of Pharmaceutical Industry had engaged in meetings with EU officials both from the European Parliament and the Commission in order to introduce PEF as a reliable source of information for the situation of the pharmaceutical sector in Greece. The executive board of PEF traveled to Brussels in January and February 2013 to meet with the EU officials and share its concerns and on recent legislative proposals affecting the Greek pharmaceutical manufacturing industry.
