Li said, "Food safety has a direct bearing on the health and safety of all people, and was a basic requirement of a moderately prosperous society. A food trace system monitoring the whole process of food production, logistics and sales should be established."

The conference was also attended by Zhang Gaoli, head of a ministerial food safety committee under the State Council.
