Sri Lanka: Agricultural Biotechnology Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Sri Lanka does not produce genetically engineered (GE) crops or animals. Some GE research is carried out at the laboratory level, but no development exists at a commercial level. The country does not allow the import of GE food, crops, or animals. Sri Lanka signed and ratified the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety in 2004. Sri Lanka is in the process of developing policies to regulate and promote biotechnology. Most of the policies are incomplete, or not fully implemented.
