Egypt: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On March 5, 2017, the Egyptian Ministry of Environment submitted a new biosafety bill to the cabinet. The bill is currently being revised by the cabinet’s Judicial Reform Committee prior to submission to the Parliament of Egypt for ratification. Egypt requires a functional biosafety framework that implements a transparent and clear policy. Without one, Egypt cannot move forward in the area of biotechnology. Egypt imports roughly 8.8 million metric tons (MMT) of corn and 2 MMT of soybeans annually, and these are largely sourced from the United States and other markets that openly commercialize genetically-engineered (GE) varieties.
