Brazilian Biotechnology Present at BIO 2010 Is Looking for the Worldwide Market
Date:5/5/2010

SAO PAULO, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Twenty-two Brazilian companies and entities linked to biotechnology are taking part in the BIO International Convention 2010, held on May 3 to 6, in Chicago (USA), in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brazil). At the Convention the BrBiotec Brazil brand will be launched, to characterize the country's products at the international level. Brazil will have a large stand and will hold many presentations during the event.

The biotechnology market generates in the Country around US$ 10 billion/year, with the largest emphasis on the public health and natural environment areas, but the National Biotechnology Policy, established in 2007, estimates that the Country will be among the five largest worldwide business poles until 2015.

"Our purpose is to promote Brazil as a high-quality supplier of products developed based on the production and handling of microorganisms or on a part of them, and related services, far beyond the country's image as a traditional ethanol producer," said Sergio Risola, Cietec's executive director. The initiative is a joint work by Apex-Brazil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency), Biominas Foundation, Cietec (Technological Companies Incubating Center), the National Social and Economic Development Bank (BNDES) and Bio-Rio Foundation.  

Until now, BrBiotec, the Biosciences Integrated Sectorial Project held by Apex-Brazil, has a platform with 23 companies and 28 aggregated institutions. The purpose is to extend the number of members and attract at least 50 companies until this year's end.


The study Panorama on Biotechnology in the World and in Brazil has shown that the Brazilian biotechnology scientific production in areas such as animal and vegetal reproduction, biological control in agriculture, biomass conversion and biodiversity has been highly important, by occupying the first 15 positions in global terms between 1998 and 2007 in the worldwide ranking. And Brazilian universities have been ranked among the Top 25 in terms of scientific production in all 14 biotechnology areas included in the survey.
