  "abstract": "<p><strong>Background: </strong>Approximately 91% of drugs are imported, some of which are quite expensive and unaffordable for the majority of the population. The&nbsp;process of drug development, i. e. the pathway from synthesis of active substance to drug, its implementation in the clinic, is quite complicated and&nbsp;long-lasting, of great responsibility and particularly costly, requires enormous investment. The manufacture and implementation of the medicine in the&nbsp;medical practice creates great difficulties in starting it. Pharmaceutical manufacturing companies from the country with modest profitability are unable&nbsp;or unwilling to invest financial resources in scientific research &ndash; an important stage in the development of medicines and in ensuring the beneficial&nbsp;activity of the concerned institutions.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Conclusions:</strong> National industry must be focused on the modern manufacturing medicine, competitive and effective medicines from local raw material&nbsp;and first of all on the needs of the health system in the country. The situation requires insistence and can only be improved by a joint activity of specialists&nbsp;in many fields (production, distribution and rational use) and strengthening the research-development and coordination forces of the scientific activities&nbsp;in the country for research, development and implementation of new native original drugs, mainly based on local raw materials. Thus, in finalizing the&nbsp;analysis of the role of the pharmaceutical industry in the economic development of the state, it is necessary to mention the important social aspect of it,&nbsp;the close interrelation with other branches of industry, as well as the high innovation and investment capability.</p>",
