EU to study socio-economic impacts of GM crops

The European Commission is to set up a technical working group to define the factors and indicators for analysing the socio-economic impacts of genetically modified crops. The group, which will comprise EU member-state representatives, will have its first meeting in late November. The Commission is also organising an international workshop with the UN FAO on the socio-economic impact of GM crops. The plans were outlined by Paula Testori Coggi, director general of the Commission’s Health and Consumers Directorate General (DG SANCO), at a conference in October.
