ISLAMABAD: A workshop on capacity building of biosafety technology was held recently at

Islamabad, hosted by the Pakistan Agricultural Research Council andamp; Pakistan Biotechnology

Information Centre.

Addressing the Workshop, the Federal Minister for National Food Security and Research said

that biotechnology will bring food production in the country up. He urged the need for

motivation of farmers to adapt new and modern crop technology.

The real benefits will be attained through generating strong awareness about the practical

application of biotechnology products among general public and farmers at large. Apparently,

crop biotechnology has enormous prospects. It is heartening to note that progress has been made

in the field of biotech crops. There is a strong need for positive use of biotechnology for public

welfare and a commitment towards safe handling of GM (genetically modified) crops.
