BIOTEC organized a mission of ten Thai companies to participate in the “2007 Gangwon Bio International Symposium & Asia Business Partnering”, held in Gangwon, Korea during 28 – 30 May 2007. The event was organized by Chuncheon Bioindustry Foundation (CBF Korea) in collaboration with three partners -- Dalian Hi-Tech Industrial Zone Productivity Center (China), Kurume Research Park (Japan) and BIOTEC (Thailand). The event provided a great opportunity to introduce BIOTEC and Thai companies to biotech companies from Korea, Japan, China and Australia.
BIOTEC together with CBF, Dalian Hi-Tech Industrial Zone Productivity Center (China) and Kurume Research Park (Japan) signed a 2007 Common Declaration of Asia Biotechnology Industry Leaders to promote business collaboration in Asia’s biotechnology community.

In conjunction with this event, BIOTEC and CBF signed a 3-year collaborative MOU to promote cooperation between the member companies of both associations to ultimately materialize the growth and development of the bio-venture enterprises of both nations.
