Telangana is all set to host the three-day Bio Asia 2020, Asia’s largest Biotechnology and Life Sciences Forum with the theme of ‘Today for Tomorrow’ from February 17 in Hyderabad. About 2,000 delegates from 37 countries will be attending the annual flagship event of Government of Telangana in the presence of most eminent personalities and industry stalwarts from life sciences sectors across the globe.
Commenting on BioAsia 2020 and the role of Telangana state life sciences industry, Indutries minister KT Rama Rao said: “Over the years, we have worked towards making Telangana one of the key hubs for Life Sciences industry and we have covered a significant path. The state is now known as the top Pharma and Life Sciences destination in the world. Genome Valley, India’s first and only systematically developed R&D and clean manufacturing ecosystem, has become the largest innovation and life sciences cluster in Asia. BioAsia has been playing a key role in bringing together the global industry leaders, researchers, policymakers, innovators, and investors together on one platform discussing the new opportunities and developing strategies to succeed.
He said BioAsia has been instrumental in attracting world leaders to Hyderabad and that it helped showcase the infrastructure in Hyderabad to the global leaders who get the first-hand experience of the ecosystem which helps them in their decision on investments.
