Hong Kong: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

Hong Kong does not have any policy changes on labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods. The Hong Kong government encourages voluntary labeling and there is no imminent sign of discussing mandatory labeling on its work agenda. The State Key Laboratory of Agrobiotechnology of the Chinese University of Hong Kong received RMB1 million for research on plant hormones in 2018. This was the first time that Hong Kong’s academic institutions received cross border funding from China for conducting research on agricultural biotechnology projects and similar funding to support research projects is expected to continue in the future.
