New Zealand biotech: An emerging global presence

More than one dozen New Zealand companies, involved in a range of leading-edge human therapeutics and agricultural products, are participating in BIO 2003 in Washington, DC, each representing world-class biotech innovation and a powerful product pipeline.

WASHINGTON, DC, June 22, 2003 New Zealand has the eighth-fastest-growing biotech industry in the world. Many of the country's major biotech companies will be represented here at BIO 2003, sponsored by the Biotechnology Industry Organization (www.bio.org), June 22-25 at the Washington Convention Center.

New Zealand is an emerging world leader in applying biotechnology. Discoveries from the country's world-class primary sectors including biomedical science, agriculture, and animal healthcare improve efficiencies and create new applications in the biomedical industry. New Zealand's unique disease-free animal health status, international scientific network, and focus on an innovative, knowledge-based economy provide stakeholders with the competitive edge needed for global success. Experts in both the private and public sectors agree: The surging biotech industry in New Zealand now mirrors the transformation that occurred in Scotland, Israel, and other leading biotech regions over the past decade.
