Steve Rao hosted a visit by the Delegation from Andrapradesh, India — the largest biotech and pharma state in India, and the Federation of Asia Biotech Association at Fuji Film Diosynth in Morrisville.
Earlier in the day, Rao and the delegation visited the NC State Centennial Campus, NC Bio-manufacturing Education and Training Center, and the NC Biotechnology Center, where there was a lunch with biotech and pharma executives.
The delegation discussed how they are working with US companies to help them expand presence in the Indian market through their Genome Valley Park, a global biotech park in their state. In addition, Rao and Commissioner Kumar, have identified establishing a regional partnership between Andrapradesh and the Triangle focusing on Indian multinationals investing and creating jobs, while at the same time increasing access to a multi-billion biotech and pharma market in India.
I see next steps from this visit and this is yet another example of how we can leverage our growing diversity, to establish partnerships to advance our economic growth and extend our brand to the rest of the world. — Steve Rao
