The meetings that led to the agreement began in October with the aim of identifying some strategic partners to prepare production on the Italian territory and the choice fell on the biopharmaceutical company Adienne Pharma & Biotech, chaired by Antonio Francesco Di Naro. The vaccine will be produced starting from July at the Adienne headquarters in Caponago near Monza, in Brianza.
“The innovative production process” of Sputnik “will help create new jobs and will allow Italy to control the entire production process of the preparation. This will allow the production of 10 million doses by the end of the year “, says the Italian-Russian Chamber of Commerce, in the note.
Italian companies are strategic in the European panorama and are able to face the market with flexibility and speed. The agreement between Russia and our associated company is the first agreement with a European partner. A historic agreement that shows the state of health of relations between our two countries and underlines how Italian companies know how to see beyond political controversies. This partnership comes after many months of dialogue thanks also to the invaluable support of the Italian Embassy in Moscow.
CCIR has always promoted Made with Italy, in this case being a mixed chamber of commerce, we promote Made with Russia. I am sure that this collaboration will allow new investments in the pharmaceutical sector in Italy with positive effects in terms of employment for the benefit of the entire industry.
At this time, the creation of a vaccine that is safe and available for all is essential to get the companies and economies of our countries out of this situation of instability for public health. We have made a “relay” without shirts or political flags “declared the president of the Italian-Russian Chamber of Commerce Vincenzo Trani.
