Mozambique to issue pro-GMO biosafety regulations

Mozambique is to revise its biosafety regulations to facilitate the approval, trial and adoption of genetically modified organisms, newswire AllAfrica reports. The Minister of Science and Technology, Venancio Massingue, declared the intention at the opening of a seminar on biosafety guidelines for the handling and risk management of GMOs. Mozambique ratified the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety in 2001, and in 2007 approved a set of biosafety regulations dealing specifically with the management of GMOs. Some GMOs were subsequently forbidden from entering or passing through Mozambique. Mr Massingue says agriculture and technology are considered key to Mozambique for the next few years.
