Today Semana Magazine, Colombia’s leading and international prize-winning magazine, published the article: ¿Cómo ser más competitivo? (How to increase competitiveness?) following an exclusive interview with Ma’ayan Laufer, a senior consultant at Pugatch Consilium. The interview took place last week, right after the launch of Pugatch Consilium’s recent report: “Challenges and Opportunities – Developing the Biotechnology Sector in Colombia” at the Bionovo conference in Bogotá, Colombia [BioNovo]
The key findings of the report, that Colombia could see over 100 new clinical trials and up over $450 million in economic gains per year from a reform to its clinical research policy environment, are presented and discussed in the interview, along with the variety of health, economic and societal gains derived from clinical research.
