Taiwan: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Taiwan uses a science-based process for evaluating and granting approval for imports of genetically engineered (GE) products for processing, food, and feed use. No GE crops or animals have been approved for domestic production. In 2018, Taiwan imported over $1.6 billion of U.S. genetically engineered (GE) crops, accounting for 42 percent of total U.S. agricultural exports to the island. Taiwan authorities are currently debating how to regulate innovative biotechnologies.
