Adjust font size:

China has unveiled a five-year plan for food and drug safety administration, aiming to improve monitoring and law enforcement systems and the order in food and drug production so as to reduce safety accidents in the sectors.


The plan, issued by the State Council, said by 2010 the food safety information monitoring network will cover 90 percent of the country.


The quality eligibility rate of fresh agricultural products in large wholesale markets and chained supermarkets in big and medium-sized cities will reach 95 percent in 2010, it said.


The plan also vows to enlarge the drug quality inspection forces and build more institutes to supervise drugs and medical equipment.


Governments at all levels should increase expenditure in support of the infrastructure construction for food and drug safety and enhance supervision capabilities, the plan said.


The plan was jointly worked out by the State Food and Drug Administration and authorities for environmental protection, science and technology, commerce, agriculture and health.
