Senegal: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The Government of Senegal is in the process of approving a revised biosafety law which currently includes language for an expedited approval process for certain genetically engineered (GE) products. A draft regional biosafety law is pending approval by the Economic Community of West African States members that reportedly allows for regional approval of GE products. Because reliable information is limited, many West Africans are not well informed about the issues involved with biotechnology. Gaining future market acceptance will depend on efforts to inform and educate the public about the safety and benefits of biotechnology products. This is a regional report on West Africa that covers Senegal, Burkina Faso, Mali, Guinea, Niger and The Gambia.
