Nations racing to embrace GM crops - New York Times, February 22, 2003
...The three most populous countries in Asia
China, India and Indonesia are
already planting millions of acres of genetically
modified cotton. Several other large Asian countries,
including Japan, Thailand, the Philippines and
Malaysia, are earmarking billions of dollars
for private and government-sponsored research
on biotech crops.... pirated seeds are believed
to be in wide use today in Thailand and Pakistan...
BTW: Here's a good Straight Dope column
explaining the pros
and cons of GM foods.
