Xinhua: Chinese top legislator Zhang Dejiang has called for improvements and reforms to the country’s food safety supervision system. Zhang, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC), made the remarks Tuesday while presiding over a meeting of inspectors under the NPC Standing Committee to check the enforcement of the Food Safety Law.

The inspection team sent five groups of inspectors to ten provincial regions from April to May, and 21 provincial regions were entrusted to conduct inspections within their own jurisdictions. Citing difficulties in supervising farming and small food vendors, Zhang said reforms need to be deepened to ensure that the law is implemented properly.
