As part of the continuing effort the Philippines has been making to responsibly develop and use biotechnology, the 2011 National Biotechnology Week was celebrated in Manila as an event open to the public. Dr. Reynaldo Ebora from the National Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (BIOTECH), and Philippines Coordinator for PBS, presented a paper entitled “Rising to the Challenge of Food Security and Climate Change through Biotechnology, the Philippine Context”. In addition, an exhibit was displayed at the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) building to highlight the support PBS has been providing to the Philippines, working in collaboration with national partners.
