Regional Government praise for Rovi Company commitment.

Andalusia’s Regional Minister of Finance and Knowledge, Antonio Ramírez de Arellano, and the Regional Minister of Health, Aquilino Alonso, have highlighted the "major commitment" of Health Sciences Technological Park (PTS) company Rovi Pharmaceutical Laboratories to continued international growth in production and innovation from Andalusia, and what this represents as a motor for the economy and development of the Autonomous Community.

Such were the comments of both ministers during their visit to the company production plant, where they were able to gain first-hand knowledge of the work carried out by one of the largest companies operating out of the PTS, a strategic hub for innovation, technology and research in Granada now and in the future.

Ramírez de Arellano emphasised the importance of "being able to put a face to companies like Rovi and make their work visible. They are locally based and have a commitment to knowledge, to retaining and making use of Andalusian talent. This approach, based on having a skilled workforce, good know-how and the opportunities offered by operating out of Andalusia, draws investment in".

The minister similarly remarked that the production plant in the PTS is "designed as a model of knowledge and technology transfer in the health and bio-medicine sector" and that it brings together "some of the most outstanding examples of the relationship between the University of Granada and private initiative".

In the case of Rovi, he drew attention to the high percentage of university-educated staff (almost 70%) in the Granada plant and the high degree of automation of its production processes.

For his part, Regional Minister of Health Aquilino Alonso stated that "Andalusia continues its commitment to consolidating itself as a bio-region able to stimulate the bio-medicine and bio-technology sectors and to be a focal point for efforts and alliances, which is what we are seeing in the PTS and the Granada Health brand".
