This report contains the first set of official statistics on the modern biotechnology industry in New Zealand. It was undertaken by Statistics New Zealand, with funding sponsorship from the Ministry of Research, Science and Technology.
The analysis is based on a survey of known participants in the industry; the first of its type carried out in New Zealand and only the fourth of its type carried out by an OECD country. The survey, known as the 1998/99 Biotechnology Survey, drew upon the experience of overseas statistical offices and the advice of a group of industry experts from within New Zealand.
