Jim Greenwood, President and CEO of BIO, the world's largest biotech association, in a videotaped message expressed his affirmation of Taiwan and his expectations for this year's event. "Taiwan is already a global powerhouse in technology, IT and computing systems. As biotech evolves, we are marrying new breakthroughs like artificial intelligence with Big Data derived from the human genome. That's why Taiwan is uniquely situated to play an integral role in the future of our industry. Taiwan BIO's annual conference is already an established and important event for the local biotech community. Now we believe BIO Asia-Taiwan will become a premier, must-attend conference for entire Asia-Pacific region," said Greenwood.

With the theme of this year's event being "Biotech as the Next Growth Engine for Asia", Johnsee Lee remarked that as many innovative biomedical advances in the future will be closely integrated with digital technologies, and with the ICT industry being a unique advantage of Taiwan, this year's BIO Asia-Taiwan conference will showcase Taiwan's digital advantage in this sector. Applications such as AI, smart hospital and medical devices, precision medicine, etc., will be showcased as Taiwan takes the opportunity to encourage its electronics industry leaders to invest resources in biotech. Lee also thanked the government for its strong support in facilitating the holding of such a significant international conference.

Thanks to the support of BIO, participants in this year's conference will be utilizing BIO's renowned one-to-one business partnering platform, creating business opportunities for all participants. BIO also intends to use its vast network of industry contacts to encourage international and regional delegations to participate in the occasion. It is estimated that the numbers of international exhibitors and delegates will increase significantly this year. With the inclusion of a special program of medical seminars and training courses, BIO Asia-Taiwan will also be targeting medical professionals and members of biotechnology and medical associations. In addition, with the increasing convergence of industry sectors, both Taiwan and global electronics, financial and investment firms will be invited to discover opportunities at BIO Asia-Taiwan.

The Conference & Forum program will feature pertinent business-related topics such as cross-border investment, mergers and acquisitions, regional cooperation models. Biomedical topics covered will include cancer immunotherapy, cell and gene therapy, CAR-T, and regenerative medicine. The latest game changing technologies featured will include artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, the Internet of Things, genetic sequencing, gene editing, liquid biopsies, etc. International experts will be invited to give presentations on such exciting topics and participate in these forums.
