President Director of PT. Indofarma Tbk Arief Pramuhanto in his speech said that Indofarma is one of the pharmaceutical SOEs that focuses on Pharma, Herbs, and Medical Devices. If we can enter into phytopharmaceuticals, which are mostly domestic raw materials, we can certainly reduce dependence on imported medicinal raw materials. To achieve this, collaboration with universities and research institutions is needed. Arief Pramuhanto hopes that the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding can be executed with a clear timeline.

The Vice Chancellor hopes that through technical cooperation with the Pharmacy Study Program, especially cooperation in downstreaming research results, and if there are obstacles, they can be solved.
