Thailand calls on Danish biotech expertise  

The Thai government has sought Denmark's help in planning a science park as part of Thailand's 2003 Biotech Year initiative
Thailand has named 2003 "Biotechnology Year" as part of which the Thai government is planning a DKK 1.5 billion (USD 210 million) science park north of Bangkok, and has called on Danish expertise to assist with the project. Researchers from the Danish food ingredient giant Chr. Hansen have been asked to construct a "wish list" for building a state of the art biotech laboratory and fermentation plant. The equipment inventory they have compiled will cost an estimated DKK 150 million (USD 21 million), and the Thai authorities are currently considering the proposal. Thailand normally earmarks up to DKK 80 million (USD 11 million) each year for food research, the most important areas being black tiger prawns, chickens, sugar cane and rice. The new science park is located 70 km north of Bangkok and covers an area of approximately 32 hectares. The news is reported by
