The biotech industry in Asia has grown substantially in the past few years. This growth is accompanied by significant opportunities in the biotech sector in countries like Singapore and Taiwan. These countries have committed significant resources and effort to build up their respective biotech industry and attract inward investments. Last year, Singapore announced that it was setting aside more than US$8 billion to strengthen its R&D capabilities over the next few years. More recently, Malaysia became the third largest participant at BIO 2007 (after the United States and Canada) where its companies seek out collaborations with international biotech organisations. Other countries like Thailand and Korea are also actively developing their respective industry.
Although still in its early phase of development, the biotech industry in Asia has already achieved some early success. For example, Thailand's efforts in agri-biotechnology have enabled the country to maintain its lead as a major agriculture player. Taiwan, on the other hand, boasts one of the largest numbers of home-grown biotech companies. All these countries are contributing to Asia's rise as a major force in biotech and offer significant opportunities to companies and investors alike.
Past missions have resulted in deals and other benefits for participants. It is now your turn to discover Asia's dynamic biotech scene. Come join us today!
