China to Host International Food Safety Forum

Changes in food production and consumer habits, as well as increasing trade liberalization and economic globalization, have made food safety an increasingly important global issue. It not only concerns human health, but also has a major impact on national economies.

A high-level International Food Safety Forum will bring together senior officials from Member States of the World Health Organization and representatives of the food industry and consumer organizations to discuss strategies to enhance food safety worldwide.
