Welcome Remark

Dear friends and colleagues,


On behalf of the Thai Society for Biotechnology (TSB), the Asian Federation of Biotechnology Thailand Regional Branch Office (AFOB – Thailand RBO) and the Organizing Committee of 7th Biotechnology International Congress (BIC 2023), I am delighted to welcome you to the Congress and Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL in Bangkok from September 6-8, 2023.

Thai Society for Biotechnology (TSB) and Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL started the TSB International Forum in 2013 and became Biotechnology International Congress (BIC) in 2015 and used to be annually organized. However, the Congress was canceled for 3 years due to COVID-19 pandemic. This year BIC 2023 is served as community hubs, encouraging collaboration, exchange of ideas and technology focusing on various aspects of biotechnology. The Congress collaborated with Thai Probiotics and Lactic Acid Bacteria Group to update the research on the impact of probiotics on the gut immune system, and the Asian Federation of Biotechnology Association (AFOB) to strengthen the linkage.

The theme of this Congress is “Advances in Biotechnology for Attaining BCG Goals”. The BCG model has been promoted as a new economic model by the Thai Government for inclusive and sustainable growth. Therefore, our society has an essential role to promote industries in the areas of agriculture and food; medical and wellness; bioenergy, biomaterial and biochemical based on transforming biodiversity to a value-based and innovation-driven economy. We believe that the events would be a vital platform providing opportunities for cooperation and support among participants from various sectors during these 3 days of Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL, 2023.

Finally, I wish you all success, fruitful meetings, and well-spent visits at this 7th Biotechnology International Congress and Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL 2023.


Sincerely yours,

Associate Prof. Chuenchit Boonchird, Ph.D.

President TSB

Vice – President AFOB - Thailand

Chairman Organizing Committee BIC 2023
