Developing The World

Application of biotechnology in agriculture has been in effect for a long time. Over the past decades, more than 20 million households and billions of global consumers benefit from the increase of crop yields, improved nutrition, more paycheck as well as minimizing negative impact on the environment.

According to the ISAAA report, the total area of ​​biotech crops in 2018 was 191.7 million hectares, cultivated in 26 countries and used in 70 countries globally. Compared to the first year usage, the cultivated area has increased 113 times with a total accumulated area of ​​about 2.5 billion hectares. The figures show the impressive pace of application of biotechnology, which has brought significant and outstanding benefits.

New cultivars and new achievements in medicine such as gene therapy to repair genetic defects; Genetic recombination techniques have helped create vaccines to prevent viruses and produce hormones and interferon for the treatment of human diseases.

Achievements in other industries can be named such as morphing proteins from microorganisms to ensure the safety of food sources; using microalgae and fungi to handle waste to reduce the amount of toxins discharged into the environment; compiling green energy from biomass.

Biotechnology is pioneering in the next technological revolution. In this article, let’s discover in detail about the attractiveness and potentials of the Biotechnology.

Attraction and Great Job Opportunities

The Prime Minister has issued Decision No. 553 / QD-TTg approving the master plan for the development of bio-industry to 2030.
