TAIPEI, June 12, 2019 - (Media OutReach) - At the recently concluded BIO 2019 International Convention, held in Philadelphia, president of BIO (Biotechnology Innovation Organization, the world's largest biotech industry association) Jim Greenwood met with Johnsee Lee, chairman of the Taiwan Biotechnology Industry Organization (Taiwan BIO) and Wu Tsung-tsong, Minister without Portfolio, the Executive Yuan of Taiwan, to together announce the upcoming BIO Asia-Taiwan 2019 International Conference and Exhibition to be held in Taipei 24-28 July. The theme of this event will be 'Biotech as the Next Growth Engine for Asia'.

Greenwood noted that the event, co-organized by BIO and Taiwan BIO, is being held in Taiwan for the first time, an important milestone and recognition of Taiwan's current standing and future potential within the global healthcare industry ecosystem. With Taiwan's longstanding leadership position in a number of information and communication technology (ICT) industries, and with healthcare moving more and more into the digital realm -- combining with advances in AI and Big Data for example -- Taiwan is well placed to become an important and essential link in the years to come. Greenwood mentioned that he would be attending BIO Asia-Taiwan in person, and was looking forward to being a part of such an esteemed gathering of international biomedical industry professionals.

Johnsee Lee, chairman of the steering committee of BIO Asia-Taiwan, noted that the event had attracted significant international interest, with the exhibition hosting pavilions from 18 different countries, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Italy, South Korea, India, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand, Poland, Thailand, Austria, Hong Kong, Germany, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. The number of overseas exhibitors so far is at least 70, including many multinational pharmaceutical companies. At least 600 companies have confirmed their participation, taking up 1,700 booths on the exhibition floor.

While in Philadelphia for the BIO Convention, Taiwan BIO representatives took the opportunity to call the local industry association Life Sciences Pennsylvania, and also MassBio, the biotech association of Massachusetts. They also met with representatives of the Thailand Center of Excellence for Life Sciences (TCELS), and with KoreaBIO and JBA, the associations of South Korea and Japan respectively, all of who indicated with be sending representatives to Taipei for BIO Asia-Taiwan.

Leading the Taiwan delegation to Philadelphia was Wu Tsung-tsong, Minister without Portfolio, the Executive Yuan of Taiwan. Wu mentioned that in supporting BIO Asia-Taiwan, the government hopes that it will be an opportunity to showcase the country's strengths and capabilities in biomedical research and development, and highlight its achievements in such sectors as new drug development, diagnostics, biomedical materials and precision medicine. In doing so Wu hopes it will attract more of the global biotech community to Taiwan for business and cooperation engagement.
