It is not without an important reason that the US Department of Agriculture has been bringing up this feature that China is moving towards commercialisation of its own (cotton) Biotechnology Crops. The background is the takeover of Swiss Syngenta (a crop science company) by Chinese ChemChem. The reason why TextileFuture brings this complex matter - biotechnology is a vast field with various sectors - to our readers’ attention is mainly genetically engineered cotton. The feature allows also an insight in the thinking of the Chinese lawmakers and the competitive situation in the USA where cotton, cotton exports and the crop protection firm Monsanto play an important role in this respect, so to speak a counterweight in the still pending takeover. Some of the passages give you a deep insight into Chinese thinking, respectively U.S. counter views. In some way today's feature is a continuation of TextileFuture's series on China, and we admit that in some parts it is a rather stodgy reading fare, yet informative. The feature is entitled China moving towards commercialisation of its own (cotton) Biotechnology Crops
