This follows up on the biotechnology conference in the USA-Italy bilateral relationship that took place in November 2023.

“With more than 800 companies, 14,000 employees, over 13 billion in revenue, and a strong component of Research and Development, the Italian biotechnology sector is experiencing a significant development phase and represents an important driving force for growth in sectors with increasingly high added value,” the minister stated.

The group, tasked with formulating strategies and recommendations regarding the internationalization of actors active in the field of biotechnology to strengthen the entire national sector, “reflects the attention that the Government, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, attributes to the international development of innovative sectors and emerging technologies, within the framework of Diplomacy for Growth,” Tajani further stated.
