Open Debate on Biotech in Egypt
Monday, 2013/05/06 | 08:55:36

A workshop was organized by the Egypt Biotechnology Information Center (EBIC) entitled "Global Status of Commercialized Biotech/GM Crops - Challenges and Opportunities" on March 24, 2013 at the Faculty of Agriculture, Cairo University. Eminent scientists from different Institutes, universities, media and policy makers from the Ministries of Agriculture and Environment attended the workshop.


 Dr. Ahmed Sharaf, the Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture, inaugurated the workshop. In his talk, he stressed the role of modern biotechnology to increase agricultural productivity and to improve food security. He also focused on Egypt's great interest in agricultural biotechnology that is reflected in the establishment of research centers for genetic engineering.


Participants stressed the need to stimulate and support cooperation and integration between scientific institutions, research centers, and universities in Egypt and various Arab countries. They noted the  importance of establishing an information network among interested individuals in the field of biotechnology.  The need to strengthen public awareness regarding biotech crops through media and education was also voiced out.
