Dear Madam and Sir,
ABIC2004 in Cologne (12th to 15th September 2004) is one of the most important
international conferences on agricultural biotechnology. Scientists, industrial
managers, investors and policy makers will come together for an intensive
exchange of experience in order to give new momentum to further the development
of agricultural biotechnology and to enable co-operations between academic
research institutes and partners from industry.
This high level conference aims to bring 'AgBiotech back to Europe'. With
the imminent lift of the de facto moratorium on genetically modified food,
the implementation of new European regulations and a more competitive European
market, this conference is important as ever to give new impulses to the
European AgBiotech research and AgBiotech business in Europe.

ideally and financially. In addition well-known national and international
companies will be presented as exhibitors in Cologne. High-ranking speakers
