The BioIndustry Association has signed a memorandum of understanding with the NZBIO, the trade association representing bioscience companies in New Zealand.
The agreement establishes a working alliance between the two and will provide a united voice for the two nations and assist members to build international ties.
Bronwyn Dilley, Chief Executive, NZBIO, says the partnership will “help ‘unlock’ the potential of both regions”.
The organisations have similar goals and are dedicated to growing successful companies in both regions.
“We believe the partnership between the BIA and NZBIO will form the foundations of a community between our members, as well as offering the possibility of joint events to highlight opportunities for international collaboration,” said Nigel Gaymond, BIA Chief Executive.
