Ahmed Al-Najjar said that the company is at an advanced stage of preparation for the establishment of a new industrial unit in Sidi Thabet in the governorate of Ariana, with a total investment of about 30 million dinars.

The new plant will be equipped with the latest technology in line with international standards adopted in this field, stressed the general manager of HIKMA Pharmaceuticals, who added that this expansion is an affirmation of confidence in Tunisia as a privileged place for investment in its regional environment.

The CEO also said that the company plans to make Tunisia its strategic platform to move towards the African market.

HIKMA had entered into a non-binding clause in January 2021 with GSK, one of ADWYA’s licensors, with the aim of potentially acquiring its interests in certain entities that carry out pharmaceutical and consumer marketing and manufacturing activities on behalf of GSK in Egypt and Tunisia.

Two months later, HIKMA Pharmaceutical terminated discussions regarding the acquisition.
