The following is an excerpt from a story originally published by NBC Boston on April 3, 2023.
One of the events during Boston’s Experience America was a roundtable discussion between ambassadors and technology leaders, business executives and research scientists at MassBio in Cambridge, an organization that represents and provides resources to life science companies.
“I really want them to understand the value that this industry can provide,” MassBio Vice President of Economic Development and Workforce Ben Bradford said. “This is an industry that changes lives for people all around the world, not just the people here in Massachusetts. So, understanding what goes into making a successful ecosystem, that’s going to be good for all of us.”
Albanian ambassador to the U.S., Floreta Faber, was among the diplomats at MassBio. She’s gone on several Experience America trips throughout her tenure now, after being appointed to her position in 2015.
“Each of us…look at all the opportunities that we can share between our countries,” Ambassador Faber said. “We sometimes see ourselves also sharing a good experience because we work a lot internationally here, especially in Boston.”
