Brazil/China to co-develop GMOs

Brazil and China are eyeing co-operation on the development of genetically modified organisms. Agreements were reached earlier this month and the governments are to sign deals to broaden investments in “commercial agriculture”, the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture says. Government parties met in the Brazilian capital, Brasilia, where agricultural biotechnology was the key topic under discussion. The Chinese Ministry of Agriculture’s Wang Ying believes that developing nations “that develop GMOs will gain stronger presence” in international trade. He is targeting deals on developing patents on GM technology between the countries. A deal is likely to include the creation of a working group to meet and share information annually on GMO studies.
