Vietnam looks to develop GM crops

VietNamNet Bridge - Vietnam has stated that the country will be
producing genetically modified (GM) crops by 2020 in a draft of a
biotechnology development plan authored by the Ministry of Industry. In
addition to GM crops, enzymes, amino acids, new generation vaccines,
antibiotics and other bio products will be produced by the country by
2020. Two hi-biotechnology centres will be built in Hanoi and Ho Chi
Minh City and a number of international standard research and
development centres will be set up nationwide to enable the plan's success.
