Grooming and paralleling
Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev suggested, as one anti-crisis measure, the introduction of parallel imports in April. Since then, the development of this initiative, well, rather discussions about it, have been moved to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) platform. By mid-September, on the eve of the next meeting of the EEC, appeared criteria for selecting the industries in which it would be possible to return to parallel imports. Ideal for the role of the “first victim” is the pharmaceutical industry, according to lawyers.
