Beijing taking steps to ensure security of Olympic Games
font size    

Food for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing will be produced in compliance with strict standards, delivered in a unified way and will carry electronic labels recording the whole process from the producer to the eaters, according to a government plan.

According to the Olympic Food Safety Action Plan, which will be carried out comprehensively this year, the Chinese capital city will also map out a preparedness plan to cope with any possible emergencies in food safety during the Olympic Games.

"We should make more detailed plans and adopt more concrete measures to ensure that there are no security problems during the Olympic Games," said State Councilor Zhou Yongkang during his inspection of Olympic security work Monday in Beijing.

He asked the relevant departments to improve intelligence work, beef up field training of security staff, make emergency response arrangements and improve overall public security so as to create a stable and harmonious environment for the Olympic Games.

He also asked them to learn experience from other countries in Olympic security work.

During the inspection tour, Zhou heard a briefing on progress in Olympic security work and approved of work already done.

"Olympic security work faces a complex and severe situation as the international situation is complicated and changeable and domestic reform and development faces heavy tasks," said Zhou.

"We should take into full consideration difficulties and problems of Olympic security work, make more specific plans and adopt more concrete measures," he said.

As one of the measures to serve the Olympic Games, the national capital has recently started to install televisions in the city's four subways, a major means of transport of the city.

Daily passenger traffic of the four subways amount to nearly 2 million people-times.

During the Olympic Games in 2008, passengers of the subways will be able to watch news broadcast, entertainment programs and weather forecast, schedule of subway trains, emergency information and security alarms on the televisions.
