Dr. Zhang (CFDA)

Global Policy & Strategy
The Chinese market is important as a market for imports to China, as a supplier of exports to the USA and world, and for their own domestic consumption. CFDA works closely with our other research colleagues at the Chinese National Center for Food Safety Risk Assessment (CFSA) and the Chinese Center for Disease Control Beijing (CCDC). CFDA has a focus on policy and regulation while CFSA’s is on implementation and monitoring. CCDC is the agency that coordinates national public health monitoring.
Presentation at Executive Education: “Chinese Food Safety Law Update and the Food Fraud Focus.”
China has one of the most comprehensive new food safety laws that split a focus on “traditional” and “non-traditional” issues. They have continued to evolve and expand their focus on detecting and preventing food fraud.
For our February 7-8-9 Executive Education we have this very special opportunity to interact with a thought leader who is also an application leader. Please contact us if you have any questions. Registration is still open – see www.FoodFraud.msu.edu. JWS.
