The National Biotechnology Policy (NBP), introduced in 2005, has completed the first two phases — Capacity Building (2005-2010) and Science to Business (2011-2015) — with the third phase, developing Global Business, to start this year and ends 2020. To date, the policy had contributed an estimated RM20 billion to national revenue and RM29.1 billion to investments, said Malaysian Biotechnology Corp (BiotechCorp) chief executive officer Datuk Dr Nazlee Kamal in an email interview.
