Breakthrough Imminent in the Fight against GMOs

Hungarian diplomacy could achieve a significant result in view of the fact that the Council of EU Environment Ministers is expected to adopt new regulations allowing member states to decide independently on the authorisation or banning of genetically modified plants at its meeting today. Accordingly, it would become easier for member states to ban the cultivation of genetically modified (GM) crops, because following the decision each country will be able to decide individually whether to authorise or prohibit the use of such agricultural seeds for cultivation. In future, such bans, which are a fundamental requirement to ensure the continued preservation of Hungary’s GMO-free status, may not only be issued for environmental and health reasons, but also on the basis of other criteria, such as for economic or social reasons.
