WASHINGTON, June 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With a 150 year expertise in the genetic improvement of animals and plants, world-class research institutions, and a globally focused outlook, New Zealand's biotech industry is well positioned as a source of innovative science, technologies and products. Led by industry organization NZBIO and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, more than 26 New Zealand companies are showcasing their capabilities in human health care, animal husbandry, plant and food research, research technologies and more this week at the 2011 BIO International Convention: The Global Event for Biotechnology held June 27-30, 2011 in Washington, DC. Ranked by the World Bank in 2010 as one of the best countries in which to do business, New Zealand is reaching out at BIO to partner with leading U.S. and international companies and research institutions.

"New Zealand is renowned for its innovation in the life sciences, built upon a long history of research applied to agriculture and human health, as well as a public-private collaborative approach to business," said Marta Mager, NZTE's Regional Director, Americas. "Moreover, the country's global mindset is illustrated by the diverse range of connections between New Zealand scientists, companies and the international biotechnology industry."

NZBIO will host a pavilion in the 2011 BIO International Convention Exhibition Hall showcasing a variety of New Zealand companies and research institutions in the areas of human medicine, agricultural biotechnology, industrial biotechnology, biomaterials, and other areas. The pavilion will include a meeting area for networking and one-on-one meetings during the conference.
