2008-09-17 12:00

Q: It's reported that the Chinese Government was only able to know about the Sanlu milk powder issue and take measures till it was informed by the New Zealand Government. Could you confirm?

A: On September 9, New Zealand briefed the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine and Ministry of Commerce of the problem with Sanlu milk powder. Before this, relevant Chinese local authorities had learned about the issue and taken corresponding measures. The Chinese Central Government, upon receiving information from the local government, immediately launched the emergency response mechanism and made due arrangements.
