BioTaiwan Committee Meeting

      To create a blueprint for Taiwan’s biotech industry and facilitate resource allocation and policy implementation, the Executive Yuan Strategy Review Board (SRB) Meeting in 2004 passed a resolution to establish the BioTaiwan Committee (BTC) to lay out national biotechnology policy. Since 2005, the BTC has met annually to review the current policy and recommend feasible strategies, priorities, and related development directions based on the national vision for biotechnology. Assessment of major research and investment projects are also performed. The meeting’s conclusions serve as guidelines for implementation of biotech industry policies.
