Current issues on transgenic crops were discussed with respect to political (including legal and regulatory issues), economic, social and technological factors. Present concern on the transgenic crops was examined particularly on these components by focusing the biosafety issues and public perception. Japanese controversy on the GM crops was raised as specific cases for assessments and critiques. Regional collaboration on the uses of GM crops was also indicated in the close future needs for the sustainable uses of products from plant genetic engineering.
