At a biotechnology conference yesterday, George Bush said:
“Acting on unfounded, unscientific fears, many European governments have blocked the import of all new biotech crops.
“Because of these artificial obstacles, many African nations avoid investing in biotechnology, worried that their products will be shut out of important European markets.
“For the sake of a continent threatened by famine, I urge the European governments to end their opposition to biotechnology. We should encourage the spread of safe, effective biotechnology to win the fight against global hunger.”
