The OECD is to hold a major international scientific conference on the food safety aspects of biotechnology and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
The conference, which will be hosted by the United Kingdom, will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre from 28 February-1 March 2000, under the title: “Assessing the safety of GM food - the OECD Edinburgh Conference on the scientific and health aspects of genetically modified foods.”
Experts from government, consumer and other interest groups, industry, international organisations and developing countries will be present. The conference results will be fed into the G-8 meeting in Okinawa, Japan, in July.
