Like in previous years, Mr. Artemiev provided comprehensive answers to the questions put forward by member companies of the AEB from different industries. 
These questions touched on important topics regarding the regulation of the pharmaceutical industries, price monitoring, parallel imports, antimonopoly compliance, Federal Law "On Protection of Competition" and so on.  

In his speech, Igor Artemiev pointed out that FAS does not plan to tighten control over foreign investment in strategic sectors.
