    In March 2018, China decided to reform the structure of its State Council and ministerial level departments. CFDA, AQSIQ and SAIC (State Administration for Industry and Commerce) are amalgamated into a new department named State Administration for Market Regulation. GAC now takes charge of entry and exit inspection and quarantine, duties previously designated to AQSIQ.

    Being one of the most important developments to come out of two sessions this year, institutional reform will undoubtedly impact the food market access and global trade, especially for special food. This webinar will illustrate which have shaped and are shaping China’s food industry and offer a case study showcasing speaker’s opinion on China’s reforms. Then the speaker will interpret the recent institutional reform and possible impact on food industry.
