China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

The Food and Agri­cul­ture Or­ga­ni­za­tion of the United Na­tions will con­tinue co­op­er­at­ing with China on farm an­i­mal wel­fare to help im­prove an­i­mal health and food safety, the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s China rep­re­sen­ta­tive said. China has made quick progress in farm an­i­mal wel­fare, although it is tak­ing time for full pub­lic recog­ni­tion of the is­sue, says Vin­cent Mar­tin, the UN’s FAO rep­re­sen­ta­tive for China and the DPRK. “We want to sup­port China in this en­deavor. ... We are now pro­mot­ing aware­ness of farm an­i­mal wel­fare,” he says. “We have a lot of projects with the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment in many dif­fer­ent ar­eas, but we have never con­ducted any joint tech­ni­cal pi­lot project to pro­mote farm an­i­mal wel­fare.”
