Save the Date: APEC High-Level Policy Dialogue on Agricultural Biotechnology Activities
Monday, 2023/05/29 | 07:51:04

The United States would like to cordially invite you to attend the APEC High Level Policy Dialogue on Agricultural Biotechnology's suite of events, to be held from July 26-31, 2023, (TBC), as part of the APEC Third Senior Officials Meeting.


The events will build on the intersessional work of HLPDAB's APEC member economies in promoting science-based, risk proportionate regulations for products of agricultural biotechnology. The suite of hybrid events includes:

  • - July 29 (TBC), Early Career Researchers and Innovative Start-ups Symposium, to be held in Seattle, will include panel discussions, lightning talks, and a poster session on new developments in agricultural biotechnologies to showcase the role of early career researchers and innovative startups in APEC. Researchers will share the latest in genetic engineering and genome editing for food and agriculture, and industry representatives will discuss the pathway from research to commercialization, and the importance of science-based policies. Virtual or in-person participation is open to member economies, academia, government officials, non-governmental organizations, and industry.
  • - July 30-31 (TBC), Workshop on Reducing Redundancies and Facilitating Efficiencies: Regulatory and Policy Solutions for the Oversight of Agricultural Biotechnologies, to be held in Seattle, will include two-days of lectures, panel discussions, and interactive activities on regulatory and policy approaches across APEC economies for the oversight of agricultural biotechnologies. Science-based and risk-proportionate approaches can mitigate climate change, strengthen supply chains, increase food security, and facilitate trade. Participants will explore various approaches to address redundancies, decrease resource costs, and increase efficiencies in regulatory processes. Virtual or in-person participation is open to member economies, academia, government officials, non-governmental organizations, and industry.
