Food safety is an increasingly important issue faced by both Asia and Europe. Both Regions recognise their mutual interest to jointly promote wider scientific and technical coordination and cooperation on the food safety framework. Considering the challenges, the seminar introduced advanced scientific knowledge and experiences in food safety management from Asian and European Countries.

The seminar aimed to enlarge the outcome of the Sanitary and Phyto Sanitary (SPS) week on food safety organised in November 2014 in China.
