Track 9: Nano science & Nanotechnology

Nano biotechnology refers to the intersection of nanotechnology and biology. Given that the subject is one that has only emerged very recently, Bio nanotechnology and Nano biotechnology serve as blanket terms for various related technologies. The most important objectives that are frequently found in Nano biology involve applying Nano tools to relevant medical/biological problems and refining these applications. Developing new tools, such as peptoid Nano-sheets, for medical and biological purposes is another primary objective in Nanotechnology.

New Nano-tools are often made by refining the applications of the Nano-tools that are already being used. The imaging of native biomolecules, biological membranes, and tissues is also a major topic for the Nano-biology researchers. Other topics concerning Nano Biology include the use of cantilever array sensors and the application of Nano-photonics for manipulating molecular processes in living cells.

The Global Biotechnology industry comprises a diverse range of firms engaged in the development of pharmaceuticals, pest-resistant crops and Biofuels, among other products. Revenue for the industry has grown over the past five years and global investment in biotechnology has increased consistently, with much of the added R&D spending funneled into medical applications aimed at providing care for the aging global population. The industry is expected to continue prospering over the next five years, with the Asia-Pacific region making significant investments to gain a foothold in the market. The total revenue on Biotechnology field is around $312bn and it has experienced an annual growth of 9.2% between 2010 and 2015. 

History of Biotechnology Market:

The foundation of Thailand’s biotechnology industry was laid in 1983 with the creation of the National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC). Since then, numerous public and private institutions have started conducting biotechnology research. To help facilitate the industry, the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) provides resources to develop the critical mass of researchers necessary to achieve Thailand’s national research and development (R&D) goals for biotechnology. Under the Biotechnology Development Policy Framework 2012-2021, the Thai government is the driving force in stimulating developments in R&D and applications of biotechnology. Currently, there are approximately 200 biotechnology firms in Thailand with a total market value over US$ 2 billion.

The National Biotechnology Policy Framework 2012-2021 emphasizes the development of four sectors including:

  1. Agriculture and food
  2. Medicine and public health
  3. Bioenergy
  4. Bio industries

 

Why Thailand?

Thailand offers various outstanding advantages for companies in the biotech industry. These include

1. Skilled Labor:

Thailand continuously supports work force development to strengthen the biotechnology sector through numerous training programs as well as financial support for students and researchers. Currently, there are 24 universities across the country with biotechnology programs educating approximately 7,000 students in the subject each year. With the National Biotechnology Policy Framework 2012-2021, the government called for the human resource development program to increase the number of bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees in the field of modern biological science to at least 10,000 students. These statistics should persuade foreign experts in biotech to conduct research and development in Thailand and create on-the-job training to provide a skilled workforce for the private sector through cooperation among research institutes and universities.

2. Access to markets:

The free trade agreements (FTAs) between Thailand and various countries including India, China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Peru, extends international trade opportunities. Moreover, the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015 will expand the Thai market to more than 600 million consumers across the 10 member states of ASEAN. The AEC will open new doors to manufacturers by transforming ASEAN into a region with the free movement of goods, capital, services, investment, and workforce. With Thailand’s strategic location in the center of Southeast Asia, Thailand is a regional transportation hub. Thailand has excellent transportation infrastructure to support product distribution to nearby countries including Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore and also southern China.

3. Attractive Investment Incentives:

Recognizing the value of biotechnology to Thailand’s future development, biotechnology is classified as a priority activity that has special importance and benefits to the country. As such, projects in biotechnology that use modern biotechnology approved by the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) or the Thailand Centre of Excellence for Life Sciences (TCELS) are granted an eight-year corporate income tax exemption regardless of location and are not subject to the corporate income tax exemption cap. Biotechnology projects also receive an exemption of import duties on machinery, regardless of location, and are eligible for other location-based incentives In addition, projects that are located in science and technology parks receive a five-year additional 50% corporate income tax reduction for net profits after the end of corporate income tax exemption period. The BOI also offers a wide range of non-tax incentives, including permission to own land, permission to bring in foreign experts and skilled technicians to work on promoted projects, and a wide range of added-value services. For example, the BOI operates both a One-Stop Service Center for visas and work Permits, which enables investors to obtain work permits and long-term visas within three hours or less.

Research and Development in Thailand:

 In Thailand, most funding for research is provided by the government. With respect to biotechnology, 80% of R&D funding comes from the public sector. The Thai government hopes to increase private funding, both from local and foreign investors, to an amount equal to the contributions of the public sector. In 2001, total R&D expenditures made available to Thai universities was approximately $25M which gradually increased to $62M in 2010.  By 2020, Thailand hopes to have R&D investment reach US$125M, with the creation of over 165 new biotechnology companies and an increase of over 200% in biotechnology-related patents. To do this, Thailand hopes to increase its biotechnology infrastructure, set forth clear policy on contentious issues, and create a favorable environment for private investment that would lead to the creation of biotechnology companies with listings on the Stock Exchange of Thailand.
