China to pour money into GM crop research

China may make a major increase in funding on genetically modified crops by launching a research programme by the end of the year, according to the UK-based Royal Society of Chemistry. The programme could receive RMB10,000 million ($1,416 million) over the next five years, which is five times more than the amount spent in the last/previous five years. This increase seems like a logical step for the Chinese government, which has been keen on staying in the forefront of GM crop research. The Chinese Academy of Science’s Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology entered into a five-year research collaboration with Syngenta on GM crops last year with a view to getting access to the global GM crop market ( Agrow No 524, p 6).
