Tanzania: President wants GMOs taken aboard

The following is an excerpt

President Jakaya Kikwete has called for change of negative mindset on the adoption of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) technology in the country.

The president, however, challenged scientists in the country to conduct research to establish the practicality of the technology to enable the government to act accordingly.

He said as long as there are no proven major negative impacts, he saw no logic in opposing the application of the technology as the government embarks on various plans to modernize agriculture and farming methods.
