The land parcel plan for the future oncology medicine manufacturing plant has been validated by competent bodies. With this, we will lay its cornerstone by the end of this year”, Adlane Soudani, Ipsen Pharma Algérie’s CEO indicated during a press conference held by Ipsen and Isly Holding’s management.

The plant’s production will initially be sold on the local market and later exported.
