High tech industry is back in the saddle in Lone Star state
The Lone Star State already has a strong presence in several biosciences sectors, and concerted efforts are underway to cement the state's position at the forefront of other biosciences fields. Texas is the national leader in agricultural feedstock and chemicals, and continued growth in that sector is expected, especially with the expanding biosciences research facilities at the University of Texas system and Texas A&M University, as well as other places.
To remain a leader in the high-tech arena, Texas must stay vigilant and continually seek ways to increase available workers, strengthen research, and enhance opportunities that encourage ongoing high-tech growth and development across the state. This task becomes even more challenging as major sectors begin to converge in the very tiny but huge world of nanotechnology. The capacity to "think small" will be imperative to future success.
