South American governments back greater GMO use - Agriculture ministers from five South American countries have affirmed their intention to support wider adoption of agricultural biotechnology. The ministers from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay are to "deepen and strengthen regulatory regimes to guarantee the use of genetically modified organisms." They pledged the compact following a meeting of the member states of the southern cone agricultural council, the CAS, in late October, in Santiago, Chile. The CAS was founded in 2003 by the ministries of agriculture of the above states and Bolivia as a roundtable on agricultural policy coordination for the region. The ministers further agreed to seek coordinated technical and financial cooperation from international organizations for the development of GMOs in line with "solid demand" of countries in the region and to instruct the CAS and its policy coordination network, the REDPA, to continue their coordinated work and promotion of GMO use.
