(Handed out at GMO Conference 2009)
Dutch debate on socio-economic impacts GMO’s:
Sidetracking the real issues?
The Dutch Ministry of Agriculture today organises a conference about a very important topic: the socio-economic impacts of GMO’s. End of last year, the EU Environment Ministers decided that socio-economic criteria should be developed for GMO’s. But at this conference, the real issues seem to get sidetracked.
The Dutch Agriculture Ministry and the conference organisers are using this debate for another aim: to set the ground for a ‘review’ of the EU GMO policy. They claim, along with the biotech and animal feed industry, that the EU admission procedure for new GMO’s is too slow. In particular, they want to see the EU zero-tolerance policy regarding non-authorised GMO’s to be abolished. The argument for this is that this policy causes economic damages for Europe’s factory farms. The focus therefore is not on the real socio-economic impacts that soy production and factory farms cause around the world.
