Our company does business at the global level, so the large share of international visitors here is also very advantageous. We had visitors from a number of different countries including Algeria, the United States and many others. That is why analytica will be on our agenda again in 2016."

"Above all, the visitors who attended the fourth Finance Day praised the first-rate panel members and the topicality of the panel discussion. The discussion demonstrated that the financial situation for biotech companies in Germany is still difficult. Companies here are envious of the market in the United States. If and when an initial spark will jump over was called into question. Those participating in the discussion agreed: Better framework conditions are needed for the industry to gather momentum."
