  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Kenya’s progress in agricultural biotechnology has suffered a setback after the National Assembly’s Agriculture committee recommended that a new food safety law on genetically engineered (GE) products be put in place, before the 2012 import ban is lifted. The Agriculture committee’s move follows an earlier decision by Kenya’s National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) to retract the open field trials license for Bt corn.
