New Zealand: ‘GE Jamboree’ upsets the Greens

The Greens are outraged by the Government spending $100,000 to host an international agricultural biotechnology conference.

MP Steffan Browning says it’s “a jamboree for GE lobbyists” and all the big names in genetically-engineered crops will be in Rotorua next month.

“The fact that the Government is supporting this conference financially shows an intent to push genetic modification,” he said on Wednesday.

“It sends a signal that New Zealand is interested in becoming a player in the GE biotech and GE food industries.”
