Taiwan: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Taiwan imported over $3.15 billion dollars of agricultural products from the United States in 2015, roughly one billion of which consisted of genetically engineered (GE) crops such as corn, soybeans and cotton. It imports a similar amount of GE crops from Brazil. Some legislators in Taiwan’s Legislative Yuan continue to advocate for restrictions on trade in GE crops despite the importance of imports, including GE crops, in meeting Taiwan’s demand for food and feed.
