Tunisia: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

Tunisia’s biosafety framework was drafted in 2014 and is being reviewed by its government with the expectation that it will be enacted by mid-2020. Tunisia currently places no restrictions on the importation of genetically engineered (GE) crops. However, Tunisian activities relating to agricultural biotechnology activities have been limited to building scientific capacity and developing a basic understanding of the technology. No GE products have been developed or commercialized for local production. Tunisia continues to import agricultural products derived from GE technologies, particularly feed grains used to support its development as a competitive livestock and poultry producer.
