For this the government will collaborate with international organizations to provide cutting-edge technology in the bio-tech sector.

The policy further envisages implementing a supportive regulatory framework and robust governance structure that enables hassle-free, time-bound statutory clearances and monitoring of the policy. The policy covers all aspects of biotechnology including bio-pharma, bio-services, agri-biotech, industrial bio-tech and systems and synthetic biology.

The Odisha Biotech Park at Andharua, Bhubaneswar, will be operationalised at the earliest. The government will also establish other thematic parks like Marine Biotech park, Agri Biotech Park and Med tech park. IDCO will identify land for these projects and select the developer.
