Science and Technology

Thailand has competitive advantage in the biotechnology sector due to its position as one of the world's leading agricultural countries, and one of the top five food exporters. With the nation's abundance of bio-diversity, cutting edge science and technology parks, highly trained technicians, and strict intellectual property law enforcement, the biotech sector is ripe for investment. Currently, Thailand is home to 165 biotechnology firms, including Purac, Betagro, Greater Pharma Manufacturing, Novartis, Maine Biotechnology, and East West Seed etc.
