In recent months, the government and many stakeholders had been working on new laws relating to GMOs. On April 15, the President Alan Garcia and the Minister of Agriculture Rafael Quevedo approved a Supreme Decree to allow the importing into and planting of GMOs in the Peru. After its publication in the Official Journal this news caused a great deal of upset. Particularly as, the consultation process surrounding this Decree had not been public enough and lacked transparency.
On top of this, the fact that some of the advisors hired by the Ministry were representatives of international GMOs companies in Peru is symptomatic of the tricky nature of this decision. Clearly the major beneficiaries are those that are going to introduce GM plants in their production.
