The Chinese government will try its best to prevent any systematic and large-scale food safety accidents. The government will resort to the strictest supervision and toughest punishment, Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli said at a meeting on food safety issues in 2015.
The government will upgrade supervision on the agriculture sector and food manufacturers so as to identify and address problems while they are small, said Zhang, also head of an inter-ministerial food safety committee under the State Council.
The government will spend more on completing a monitoring network and efficient plans for food safety emergencies while continuing to build local regulatory agencies.
