Abstract: This study investigated the effect of consumer sales promotion on the patronage of pharmaceutical products in Nigeria. The purpose of the study was to examine the effectiveness of consumer sales promotion (discount, rebates, premiums, and demonstration) on consumer patronage of over-the-counter (OTC) drugs. The methodology used was based on a descriptive research design using multistage sampling techniques. The sample size was four hundred (400) respondents, which was further analyzed using regression analysis. The findings revealed that there is a significant effect of consumer sales promotion in terms of premiums, discounts and rebates used in marketing and sales of pharmaceutical products to drive customer patronage as a consumer sales response. The study however found that consumers' sales response towards demonstrations as a consumer sales promotion was insignificant. In light of the findings, the study recommended that pharmaceutical organizations should engage in more sales promotional strategies like customer loyalty programs and the electronic and online variants of consumer sales promotion, which tends to be more creative to consumers who are now more technology-driven.

3. THE PUBLIC PROCUREMENT ROLE IN THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE POLISH NATIONAL RECOVERY PLAN AIMS

Author(s): Michal Kania
DOI:
Abstract: The post-pandemic reality in the EU will be created mostly through the implementation of the European Recovery and Resilience Facility - the EU's plan for emerging stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic. Parts of this ambitious programme are set out in the national recoveries' plans. The Polish one was adopted at the end of April 2021. This plan assumes the implementation of several pivotal challenges, including the green and digital transition of the Polish economy. Public procurement plays a crucial role when implementing the ambitious goals, i.e. the procedure envisaged for spending public money on new epochal aims. Present for nearly 20 years in the European practice, the phenomena of "strategic procurement" have been poorly adopted in the Polish practice. The chance of changing this situation relates to the new Public Procurement Law, which came into force on 1 January 2021.

6. RISK ASSESSMENT AND RELEVANT PROCEDURES IN ORDER TO MITIGATE THE RISKS FOR THE REVENUE RECOGNIZED IN LINE WITH IFRS 15
Download
Author(s): Nicolai Jieri
DOI:
Abstract: The accounting policies are designed by the accounting team and are mandatory to follow in order to be in compliance with the framework used by the company. More than this, the accounting policies are mandatory to be indicated in the financial statements at the reporting date. We are referring in this research to companies which apply IFRS as a reporting framework. Therefore, IFRS 15 in such financial statements should be described, applied, and disclosed. As an assurance to the financial team that the accounting treatment for the revenues recognized is correct, a control approach should be adopted. The process of control should contain several subphases, such as risk identification, level of the risks identified, set of materiality, and defining the procedures which would address the risks. Through this exercise, the risks identified would be mitigated to the accepted level. Therefore, the conclusions should be taken based on the completed control procedures.

DOI:
Abstract: This study was conducted to examine the effect of environmental disclosure in mediating financial performance and environmental performance on firm value. The research plan will be completed on primary and secondary industries listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) using data from the last 5 (five) years. The analysis results show that environmental performance and financial performance have a significant effect on firm value, the environmental performance has a significant effect on environmental disclosure. Meanwhile, environmental exposure and environmental performance have no significant impact on firm value. Environmental performance and financial performance do not mediate environmental exposure through firm value. This statement shows that good economic performance does not encourage companies to make good environmental disclosures because the company's primary focus is financial performance. In addition, environmental disclosure is still voluntary, so there is no obligation for companies to make extensive disclosures regarding their environmental performance. The research results are expected to be an additional reference for academics and researchers regarding the importance of environmental disclosure by companies to improve company performance and value, as well as a further concern for capital market supervisors and regulators regarding company management.

Abstract: IFRS 17 "Insurance Contracts" represents a new stage in the interpretation and accounting of Insurance Contracts. The need to apply this Standard is imperative in the context of the continuous development of the Insurance field, both nationally and internationally. Given the fact that IFRS 17 "Insurance Contracts" replaces the implemented standard IFRS 4 "Insurance Contracts", we tried to identify the particularities and innovative elements that are brought with the implementation of the new standard. One of the limitations of the study is that the standard is not yet widely applied, so we have less information on its applicability. At the same time, it stimulates us to carry out a larger study that would serve as a support for the entities that are to implement IFRS 17 "Insurance Contracts". The topicality of the subject is determined first of all that this standard has a mandatory character of application and a new vision on the accounting methods of the Insurance Contracts

Abstract: Performance encompasses skills that allow for openness to resources, destinations, and optimal use of those resources, to justify the benefits of negotiating sustainable development. Therefore, the adoption of sustainability programs can be an opportunity for companies to improve their relationships with stakeholders by increasing trust, gaining easier access to resources, with beneficial consequences for the overall performance of the company. For companies listed on the stock market, the index that presents the level of sustainability is a representative one, the measurement of sustainability effort being the order of the day, especially when we refer to the evolution of shares listed on the stock exchange. Through this paper, the authors conducted a study on companies in the pharma industry, listed on the Romanian capital market, in terms of their sustainable performance, choosing from the 7 companies on BSE, only 3, which have as main field of pharmaceutical production. From the analysis, relevant information on the stock market performance of pharma companies listed on the Bucharest Stock Exchange could be presented, as well as the essential aspects that lead to ensuring the sustainable performance of these companies, through the sustainable development objectives found in the Sustainability Reports. Sustainability in general is an essential opportunity to condition performance in a broader sense, in the medium term, performance can be treated both as an objective and as a condition of economic survival.

16. INNOVATIONS' ROLE AND IMPACT IN THE CONTEXT OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Download
Author(s): Iuliu Turcan, Rina Turcan
DOI:
Abstract: This article aims to argue the importance of innovations and their impact on ensuring the sustainable development of the economy. The article addresses the openness of economies to innovation and involves complex multidimensional research of different sources in the literature that studies the openness to the innovation of different countries and the expenditures allocated to support innovation, addressing innovation management issues specific to small businesses. The scientific novelty of the article consists in researching the correlation between research and development expenditure expressed in the form of their share in gross domestic product and adjusted net national income per capita. A separate line of research is to examine the opening up of emerging countries, which often face the problem of insufficient financial resources to allocate them to innovation. This problem becomes even more pressing if we take account of the specific structure of the economy in which small business enterprises dominate, with a significant share of the family business, for which the financing of innovation activities becomes even more problematic. The basic ideas in this article are managed in this way, as to argue the need for cooperation of the business environment with higher education institutions involved in research-development-innovation activities based on technology transfer.This article was made within the project of National Agency for Research and Development, Government of Republic of Moldova, no. 20.80009.0807.22, "Development of the mechanism for forming the circular economy in the Republic of Moldova".
