Bangladesh: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Bangladesh is a role model of acceptance and advancement of modern biotech in daily life. As an emerging economy and developing country, the country’s citizens and policy makers are aligned in the same goal of reaching a sufficient food security status to feed a population of 165 million people. With innovative biotech support from the world scientific community, Bangladesh is progressing gradually to initiate research and trials of new genetically engineered (GE) varieties of essential trait-based crops, such as rice, potato, brinjal (eggplant), and cotton. The government is also supporting scientists in this advancement, but regulatory policies are not fully developed to cover all aspects of production and marketing.
