Dear friends,

This decision was  strongly influenced by environmetal NGOs in Albania (24 environmental NGO-s signed for "Albania GMOs free country), scientists and academicians (45 scientists and academicians signed an open letter to Parliament for GMOs ban in Albania),  Albanian Consumer Association and Organic Agriculture Association.
