Will the Philippines be ready for Bt eggplant?

We are at the experimental farm of the Institute of Plant Breeding, University of the Philippines Los Banos in Barangay Paciano Rizal where Bt eggplant was on its last stages of field trials. [...] India early this year declared a moratorium on its commercialization, citing safety and environmental concerns. The IPB is developing the Bt eggplant in partnership with Mahyco and Cornell University with the support of the US Agency for International Development; International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications; Department of Agriculture and the Department of Science and Technology.
