I welcome the participants from the public and private sector, students, academics to the two days’ conference for the discussion about the future of Biotechnology. I am indeed delighted that the Microbiologist Society of India has chosen Mauritius and in particular the Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre to hold this ‘Indo- Mauritian International Conference - Biotechnology for Better Tomorrow, BTBT 2013’.I wish to extend my appreciation to all those who have collaborated to organize the event. I have no doubt that Mauritius will benefit from the deliberations of this International Conference. I would be keen to use this opportunity to discuss with Prof Deshmukh about further collaborations between India and Mauritius in this vast field of biotechnology.
