ABIC2004 - Perspectives for Emerging Countries
 
Dear Reader

AgBiotechnology will be one of the key applications for the agricultural
sector of developing countries in the next decades. The potential economic
and environmental boost triggered by AgBiotechnology applications has been
demonstrated and proven in numerous independent studies. As the EC is only
slowly and - in the case of Germany -half-heartedly committing itself to
these promising applications, AgBiotechnology may prove to be the ultimate
trigger of accelerated development in emergent countries. On occasion of
ABIC2004, Dr. Florence Wambugu of Afric Harvest will give a talk about
the implications of AgBiotechnology for Africa. For more details about

AgBiotechnology has been proven save, applicable and successful in countless
cases and after more than ten years of commercial applications. Still,
under an environmentalist's label, there is a counter-movement working
against efforts of unbiased consumer information - generally ignoring objective
arguments for AgBiotechnology applications - both environmental (e.g. less
pesticides) and economic ones. It is therefore not too surprising that
a counter-meeting is being organized in Cologne at September 12th. Information
about the "Anti-Gene-Conference" is available at [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...].
It is our hope that the participation of the churches, represented by
Misereor and "Brot für die Welt" as co-organizers, will lead to a less
heated debate and a reasonable exchange of information during our public
podium discussion on Sunday, 12, Sept., 8 pm at the Cologne Conference
Center West.

The AgBiotech-Manifesto, publicized on August 6th, has meanwhile proven
a grand success. At the time of writing, MORE THAN 300 persons have signed
the online version, which is accessible at [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
