Reacting to the supply and demand of talented work force in Singapore, Dr Andreas Schmidt, CEO, AyoxxA Living Health Technologies, says, "Convincing the best and the brightest around the world to work for your company and continue to be excited about it are always key factors for success."

In addition, we are not good in terms of sales and marketing. The biotech industry needs mechanism to develop their channel to the international market."
