First genetically engineered plants were created 30 years ago. Commercial growing in the USA began almost 20 years ago. Compared to the EU, developments in the USA were driven to a much greater extent by the business interests of companies such as Monsanto. Nevertheless, the EU has seen an opening up of its markets for the import of products derived from genetically engineered plants. In 2013, further decisions can be expected on new authorisations for cultivation in the EU.
