BIOCOM :: Asia Initiative

The competition in the life science space from other states and global regions is growing all the time. This is
the time for BIOCOM to act boldly to promote the Southern California region. It will be even more important to strategically promote the advantages of the entire region on the national and international fronts as a life science
center of innovation, product development expertise, investment and talent. Broadening the relationship with Asia by promoting the Southern California region as a gateway and a bridge should continue as one of our organization's goals.

A recent article was published in Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News (GEN) about the Five Myths of Doing Business in China. You can read a copy of that article here.
