FlyPharma Europe


Speech by Florian Tursky, State Secretary, Austrian Ministry of Finance

FlyPharma Europe will welcome Mr Florian Tursky, the Austrian State Secretary, to speak at FlyPharma Europe 2023. Mr Tursky will address the audience at the start of the conference and discuss the pharma logistics industry’s key strengths and current challenges.

Having studied press relations and integrated communication in Krems, Austria, Florian Tursky gained experience in the private sector as Regional Manager for Vienna of P8 Marketing, as well as CEO of 3D Elements. He returned into politics as Press Officer of Governor Günther Platter, later becoming his Office Manager.

As State Secretary for Digitalization in the Ministry of Finance, Florian Tursky will reveal the Austrian government’s support of the cargo community in Vienna: Vienna AirportCity has invested heavily in its pharmaceutical handling facilities, and the government recognises its potential to increase business in Austria and build local expertise within this critical market.

Due to the war in Ukraine, the government has implemented stricter handling regulations for cargo shipments, echoing the response of governments worldwide and the current pressures on the industry. The impact of these regulations will also be discussed at FlyPharma.
