The main efforts of Russian companies in 2011-2016 were aimed at implementing the import substitution strategy and at developing the domestic market. 44 import substitution drugs and 2 innovative ones were brought to the market in the framework of the implemented state program. The conducted industrial policy contributed to high investment activities in the industry. In 2011 to 2016, more than 120 billion rubles were invested into the pharmaceutical industry; more than 30 new production sites, including 7 plants, with foreign capital participation, were opened.
