Statement by Minister Wu-hsiung Chen on the passing of Dr. Norman Borlaug


Dr. Norman Borlaug has won worldwide respect for his lifelong commitment to improving food crops, which brought about the "Green Revolution" and helped feed millions of people threatened with hunger and disease. His dedication will continue to inspire agricultural scientists to search for improved food crops at a time when a large segment of the world population is still not adequately fed.

My colleagues and I salute Dr. Borlaug's contributions and offer our condolences to his family.
