„Last year the pharma market was marked by uncertainties, multiple changes and unpredictability. Despite the difficult context, we succeeded with huge efforts to obtain very good results. We are looking to be a more and more accessible pharma chain, both by the network expansion and the prices positioned in the lower area of the market,” said Mihaela Ungureanu, the general director of Siepcofar S.A.
