According to a statement released after the meeting, the country will set down more detailed categories and punishments for food safety-related crimes and revise laws and regulations to strengthen supervision in accordance with new situations,============================New laws, regulations and their enforcement is one side ofthe medal.The other side is always forgotten, and this is more important:1). China has to rethink its only punishment system after the accident happened. There is no prevention for avoiding accidents. Avoiding food and other accidents, by checking and punishing before the accident.2). The other part is education and motivation of the people. In China the Gov is in the middle of the society. It should be the people of China in the middle of the society and the Gov serving it"s people.
