The first private-run pharmaceutical factory in Myanmar started operation under the Good Manufacturing Practice-GMP yesterday morning in Yangon.  Run by Pacific Medical Industries-PMI on a 16630-squaremetre plot the factory includes a two-story quality control lab to ensure the GMP, engineer office and stores for hazardous goods.
In April this year, PMI got the recommendation from Food and Drug Administration-FDA to officially run the factory designed to prevent environmental contamination and facilitate sanitation and germ clearing processes.
The production lines have Air Handling Units-AHUs for proper ventilation, and the manufacturing facilities for powered drugs have airlocks to prevent outside air from coming into them. The factory was put into service in the presence of Union Minister for Industry U Khin Maung Cho, Chairman of the Peace Commission Dr. Tin Myo Win, Speaker of Yangon Region Hluttaw U Sein Tin Win, members of Yangon Region cabinet and others.
The private drug factory located in Dagon Seikkan Township, Yangon, is expected to fulfill the local drug demand to a certain degree.—Maung  Maung Win
