Trade mission adds to Alabama bioscience sector growth push

MONTGOMERY, Alabama – Officials believe the Alabama biosciences sector is poised for a healthy growth spurt after a weeklong trade mission to Europe added momentum to a strategic push to promote state bio companies and research organizations.

An Alabama team of bioscience firms, research outfits, trade experts, and economic development officials returned Friday, Oct. 24, from a business development and trade mission to Belgium and The Netherlands that fueled optimism about the sector’s growth prospects.

“This trade mission stands as a prime example of how those who represent Alabama’s bioscience firms are anticipating growth that will make this industry as large as the state’s automobile and aerospace sectors,” said Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield, who made presentations on the state’s life science sector in both countries.
