Prices of foreign medicines increase

The prices of foreign medicines have risen in the local market and drug stores are now facing a shortage of some imported medicines due to the scant inflow of medical products, said local drug stores.

“The prices of medicines have risen in the local market. There are also shortages of some medicines.

“As the local market is now facing a shortage of imported medicines, there has been a rise in prices,” said one of the drug store owners from Dawpon Township.

The sources reported that it’s difficult for the pharmaceutical companies to import medicines.

Maj-Gen Zaw Min Tun, a spokesperson for the State Administration Council (SAC), said at a press conference held in mid-June that the Foreign Currency Supervisory Committee meeting was being held twice a week to discuss the import of medicines and its related products.

The SAC gave top priority to importing essential goods for local consumption.

Moreover, the SAC also systematically banned the outflow of foreign currency. — Eleven Media Group/ANN
