A report by thebftonline.com shows that a signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has formalised the deal.
It has been gathered that finished pharmaceutical products and other health commodities have been negatively affected.
Consequently, the prices of ingredients needed in the sector have increased and are barely available for use in the sector.
