Wilmington, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell discusses efforts to build a well-trained workforce, foster business development, and bring together leaders from government and industry to make Delaware a center for employment in biotechnology and the life sciences.
“For more than two centuries Delawareans have driven advances in science and technology. That success has been possible because of the talents and abilities of the people who developed new products and built strong companies, and a supportive environment that encourages and sustains entrepreneurship. There has never been a more critical time to support research and innovation than today,” Governor Markell said. “By supporting the workforce and businesses in growing industries like biotech, we ensure our state is well-positioned to thrive in the 21st century economy, and that helps us keep Delaware moving forward.”
