Belgium: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Public support for agricultural biotechnology in Belgium is roughly divided between the Wallonia and Flemish regions with the latter more receptive. The Flemish region is home to a leading research institution on biotechnology that supports much of the country’s experimental field trials as there is no commercial genetically engineered (GE) crop production in Belgium. The poultry and livestock sectors remain reliant on imported GE commodities for animal feed. Boasting the capital of the EU, Brussels, Belgium is also home to a wide range of organizations trying to influence the EU’s innovation agenda.
