Vietnam moves towards GMOs

Vietnam’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment has drafted a decree on biotechnology safety management for genetically modified organisms, which will be submitted to the government in October. A guidance circular on biotech safety management, and research and development of GMO technology is being created by the Ministry of Science and Technology. A circular on biotech safety management for GM crops is also being prepared by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD). The MARD says that GM crops are expected to make up to 50% of the country’s total agricultural output by 2020. It submitted draft regulations for biosafety management of GMOs to the WTO last year ( Agrow No 539, p 20).
