Source of Article:



VietNamNet Bridge - Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has issued a decree on food safety management, inspection and testing systems from the grassroots to central levels.


Accordingly, the Ministry of Health is the agency that performs the state management role in managing food safety. The decree approves the establishment of the National Institute on Food Safety Test and some regional centres for food safety testing. These units are under the aegis of the Health Ministry.


Tran Dang, Head of the Food Hygiene and Safety Agency under the Health Ministry, said that a system of food safety management will be set up throughout the country, with around 20,000 staffs.


Dang hopes that this large number of employees will help more strictly control food safety.
