In 2012, China published 88 new standards on food safety and expanded the monitoring network on chemical contaminants and pathogenic microorganisms in food from 25 percent of county-level administrative regions to 47 percent, according to Vice Minister of Health Chen Xiaohong.

Speaking at a forum on health supervision, Chen pledged that 60 percent of counties would be covered by the end of 2013.

In July, China updated its standard on water safety, which now consists of 106 indicators instead of the previous 35.

Eight-three percent of water from plants in cities qualified under the new standard, according to Chen.
