AQSIQ recently rolled out three policies boosting imports of Taiwanese food in Pingtan city.
To facilitate customs clearance
The first one designates Pingtan as one of the four ports on the Chinese mainland to import cooked meat from Taiwan. The meat will be sold at a local duty-free Taiwanese commodity market.
The second policy authorizes Pingtan to inspect and quarantine animal and plant-deprived food in a bid to facilitate customs clearance.
The last is to carry out a classified regulation on food and cosmetics imported from Taiwan and sold at the duty-free Taiwanese Commodity Market in Pingtan, which also aims to accelerate customs clearance.
AQSIQ inspection personnel for Taiwan-imported food will be shortened from 20 to 7 workdays.
