What it's about
Biotechnology in New Zealand 2004 presents a statistical picture of the state of biotechnology in New Zealand. The information in this report was derived from data collected by Statistics New Zealand in the Biotechnology Survey 2004, conducted in August 2004.
The purpose of the Biotechnology Survey is to collect information on the use, production and uptake of biotechnology in New Zealand. It also measures the size of the biotechnology sector and identifies barriers to biotechnology research and development. Initial results from the survey were released in April 2005. This report contains more detailed information from the survey.
The biotechnology sector can be associated with innovative activities, and innovation has been cited as a key factor in sustaining economic growth, and in developing a more flexible New Zealand economy capable of competing successfully on the international stage. This sector is seen as important, due to its high growth potential, and its ability to contribute technologies and services across the economy.
