It is a matter of great satisfaction that an India-UK collaboration in vaccine manufacture here in the UK has played a vital part in the roll out. The contribution of Wockhardt at Wrexham is one of the best examples of the success and significant potential of India-UK partnerships in the healthcare sector."

Dr Habil Khorakiwala, Founder Chairman of Wockhardt emphasised, "The COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge for all and it needed a concerted effort to overcome. We are proud to be an Indian-led company working in collaboration with the UK government with our innovative international operations in Wales. It is an honour to be recognised for our capability and commitment by the visit from the Indian High Commissioner to the UK, Gaitri Issar Kumar."
