International Trade in Crops with New Breeding Technologies: The Australian Perspective
Saturday, 2021/06/05 | 06:39:57

ISAAA and partners present the webinar International Trade in Crops with New Breeding Technologies: The Australian Perspective to provide an insight into the future landscape of trade involving gene-edited crops, particularly in relation to countries involved in the international trade of agricultural products. It will be held on June 11, 2021, at 2 PM Manila / 4 PM Sydney via Zoom.


Developments in regulations of gene-edited plants are changing rapidly. Increasingly more countries, including Australia, have implemented deregulation of gene-edited crops. In Australia, this followed a series of reviews by the Office of the Gene Technology Regulator. Common approaches are also emerging among many other countries.


During the webinar, experts will discuss the following:

  • building international capacity for gene editing;
  • science diplomacy, policy, and regulatory aspects of crops developed through new breeding technologies (NBTs);
  • the regulatory landscape of gene-edited crops in Australia; and
  • NBT policy approaches and implications for trade in Malaysia, Philippines, and Indonesia.


The lineup of speakers includes Prof. Michael Jones from Murdoch University; Muhammad Adeel from WA State Agriculture Biotechnology Center; Dr. Lucy Darragh from CropLife Australia; Prof. Mohd Faiz Foong bin Abdullah from the Genetic Modification Advisory Committee of Malaysia; Dr. Reynante L. Ordonio from the Philippine Rice Research Institute, and Dr. Bambang Prasetya from the Indonesian Biosafety Committee for GMO. ISAAA Global Coordinator, Dr. Mahaletchumy Arujanan, will moderate the Q&A session.


The webinar is hosted by the ISAAA SEAsiaCenter and co-organized with Murdoch University and the ISAAA Biotechnology Information Centers. Registration to the webinar is free and open to all.
