Message from Prof Swaminathan on the Golden Jubilee Biotech Park for Women meeting
I chaired the 50th GB meeting of the Golden Jubilee Biotech Park for Women today. On this occasion I wish to congratulate the women entrepreneurs who have established environmentally sound and market driven biotechnological enterprises in the Park. This unique Park is the only one of its kind in India and shows how educated young women can take to a self employment career. This is the way to go for providing opportunities for educated women who otherwise find no method of using gainfully their university education.
