Cuba: Biotech Powerhouse
Jeremy Faludi, 6 Dec 04

Today's Wired talks about what a biotech powerhouse Cuba is. "Today the country is the largest medicine exporter in Latin America and has more than 50 nations on its client list. Cuban meds cost far less than their first-world counterparts, and Fidel Castro's government has helped China, Malaysia, India, and Iran set up their own factories: 'south-to-south technology transfer.' ...Castro made biotechnology one of the building blocks of the economy... Still, if pharma is to become an economic engine, Cuban researchers acknowledge that they'll have to join the international business community. South-to-south transfers simply don't raise enough cash."
