Kazakhstan: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KZ2021-0010

In the past year, there have been no major changes in Kazakhstan’s biotechnology policy. Kazakhstan continues to rely on Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) regulations for guidance on biotechnology issues. Genetically engineered (GE) seeds are currently only permitted to be grown in laboratories. Despite some successes by Kazakhstani researchers in developing new GE varieties, the Government of Kazakhstan shows little interest in developing new regulations more favorable to agricultural biotechnology at this time.
