SAN DIEGO  Today, Governor Charlie Baker addressed the 2017 BIO International Convention to reinforce the administration’s commitment to the life sciences sector as tech and innovation firms around the globe look to expand. Governor Baker also welcomed attendees to the 2018 BIO International Convention, that will be hosted in Boston next June.

Earlier this week, the Baker-Polito Administration announced a proposal to build upon Massachusetts success and leadership in the life sciences sector by providing up to $500 million over five years for strategic investments in public infrastructure, research and development, workforce training and education.

The convention is hosted by the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) which represents more than 1,100 biotechnology companies, academic institutions, state biotechnology centers and related organizations across the United States and in more than 30 other nations.
