Abstract:
The Quebec Biotechnology Innovation Centre (QBIC) today signed a framework agreement with BioBay - Suzhou Industrial Park, a science and industrial park in Shanghai. This agreement will allow both organizations to develop exchange projects and implement bio-incubator operating practices. Moreover, their respective companies will receive invaluable guidance in their international development efforts.

QBIC connects with China by signing a framework partnership agreement

LAVAL, Canada and China | Posted on November 1st, 2007

In the past few years, the life sciences sector has enjoyed spectacular
growth in a number of Asian countries where many companies and researchers
have moved. According to QBIC Board Chairman Dr. Jacques Gagné, "it has become
very important even for start-ups to quickly gain access to international
scientific and commercial networks."

During its third visit to QBIC, which took place this past summer, Suzhou
Industrial Park had stated it planned to develop more concrete ties with the
organization, notably within the framework of BioBay, a major nine-phase
project that will ultimately provide Suzhou Industrial Park with substantial
life science infrastructures. Phase 1 was launched in June and includes a
business incubator similar to QBIC.

Suzhou Industrial Park recently received approval from the Ministry of
Science and Technology for its NanoBay project, which will become the largest
nanotechnology cluster in China.

SIP was set up in 1994 as a joint project between the governments of the
People's Republic of China and Singapore. By early 2007, SIP had already
attracted over 2,714 foreign investments for a total value of more than
$27 billion. Over 120,000 people work in the park, which is about as large as
