Egypt: Biotechnology and Other New Production Technologies Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   EG2022-0029

Egypt requires a biosafety legal framework. Without one, the country cannot move forward in the area of agricultural biotechnology. The absence of a legal framework impedes field trials, as well as the commercial use of genetically engineered (GE) crops. The planting of GE crops is currently not authorized and there is no biosafety legal framework in place. The absence of a biosafety framework contributes directly to a lack of public awareness and trust in agricultural biotechnology. In the current environment there is no prospects for cultivation and production of GE crops for food and feed in Egypt.
