London, Oct 19 (PTI) British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday singled out Mumbai-headquartered pharmaceutical and biotech company Wockhardt for praise among companies behind the country’s successful COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

“When you look at the lightning speed of the vaccine rollout there were all sorts of things that made it possible… in Wales, I’m proud to say, we had the bottling plant that made it all possible,” said Johnson, to an audience of leading global business chiefs and entrepreneurs.

During a flagship speech at the Global Investment Summit at London's Science Museum, Johnson said Wockhardt’s Wales-based bottling plant was instrumental in ensuring the vaccination programme was a success.
