New Zealand likely to drift into a GM future

The Government could be doing more to strategically manage genetic modification in New Zealand, according to research released today by Sustainable Future. Seven years on from the Royal Commission on Genetic Modification, the research highlights that less than half of the 49 recommendations in the Commissioners’ report have been fully implemented. Sustainable Future’s chief executive, Wendy McGuinness, says there are very few decisions that a Government can make that it cannot undo – but releasing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) into the environment is one of them.
