USSEC Oversees Short Course for AgBiotech Officials at the University of Missouri

USSEC recently oversaw a two-week short course for 21 young and rising international AgBiotech regulatory officials, held at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri.  Taught by a variety of experts from both the University of Missouri and overseas, this short course is held every two years and endeavors to teach the sometimes ill-prepared overseas officials how to regulate biotech agricultural commodity imports to their country in a WTO-compliant manner that does not needlessly disrupt international commodity trade.
