  7. Life Sciences Working Group & APEC The USABC Life Sciences Working Group will seek to promote the shared objectives of the APEC Life Sciences Innovation Forum by focusing on bilateral dialogues and initiatives in ASEAN. These activities will strengthen commitment to APEC LSIF principles while positioning ASEAN to take a leadership role in this sector in APEC.

  8. Thailand Thailand has been selected as the first country of focus for the Life Sciences Working Group for multiple reasons: • Enthusiasm/support from Royal Thai Embassy • Thailand is hosting APEC 2003 • Thailand is eager to begin FTA negotiations with the US • PM Thaksin will visit the US in June 2003

  9. Working Group Plans for Thailand March 3-5: Members of the USABC Life Sciences Working Group will pursue dialogue with Thai officials to introduce their objectives and begin dialogue on areas of mutual interest. Working Group participants will be asked in advance to begin identifying possible targets of opportunity that both capture Thai social and economic interests/plans for this sector while also requiring policy adjustments that may facilitate business for working group members in Thailand.

  10. Going Forward - What is Success? From the March meetings in Thailand, the Working Group will strive to: • Maintain ongoing dialogue w/ relevant officials to identify policy issues that if addressed could facilitate growth in Thai priority areas of the Life Sciences Value Chain • Execute programs/seminars aimed at educating Thai officials on said issues, noting the opportunity presented by showcasing successes with the PM’s visit to the US in June and the launch of the APEC LSIF in October.
