By growing and producing necessary raw materials locally, the country will be able to reduce the spending of foreign exchange. As traditional medicine contributes to public healthcare on one hand, the development of the traditional medicine sector is important. It is necessary to especially control quality of export products. The research and development section is particularly important in order to export and sell international-level pharmaceutical products.

During the meeting, the Union Minister said that the government is continuously encouraging the traditional medicine sector, and has also increased the remuneration of traditional medicine practitioners. It is necessary to conduct scientific research at every stage of production and sale, depending on the research results, the products must be upgraded. Production must be evidence based, and document based.
