I want to thank OSSREA for funding research because we are going through a very difficult path in our nation and one of the things that has suffered most is academia, especially research and, by coming through with funding you have plugged in a hole of enormous proportion. This was said by the Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development, Dr Olivia Muchena, when she officially opened the National Academic Policy Workshop sponsored by the Organization for Social Science Research in Eastern and Southern Africa (OSSREA).

Olivia Muchena, Zimbabwe's Minister of State for Science and Technology Development, opened the meeting underscoring that biotechnology is a very contentious issue.Noting that there are serious rifts over the economic, social and ecological value and costs of genetic engineering, and that proponents of the technology have often over exaggerated its benefits, she said that "statements such as 'GMOs will stop hunger in Africa' are not only misplaced but also provocative.Narrowing the cause of hunger to the absence of one technology is really missing the point."She stressed that "sound policies and not charity will determine whether the new biotechnologies will be a tool for human development in Southern Africa."She invited participants to "think strategically, and act collectively as Africans to defend our resources, develop our capacity to feed ourselves, and maintain our dignity as we shape our future."

Launching the chapter, Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister Dr Olivia Muchena said local scientists and scientific institutions must create platforms to raise public awareness and stimulate dialogue on biotechnology issues in the country.
Raising public awareness, she said, will pave way for the application of biotechnology to attain food and nutritional security goals outlined in the socio-economic blueprint Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation (Zim-Asset).
"Zim-Asset speaks to the need to achieve sustainable development and social equality anchored on indigenisation, empowerment and employment creation," she said.
