U.S. Food & Drug Safety Officials Plan Office in China
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration is planning to open an office in China as early as May 2008 once final approval is given by the Chinese government. The initiative is in response to the massive amount of Chinese goods imported into the U.S. and the impossibility of inspecting all such products for safety. The goal is to improve product quality and safety at the point of origin. Discussions of similar arrangements are underway with India and Mexico, also large importers of drugs or drug ingrediants. See Gillian Wong's story for the Associated Press.
