Le coordonnateur régional opère au sein du Centre national chinois pour l’évaluation des risques de sécurité sanitaire des aliments.

Les principales priorités de la Chine en tant que coordonnateur incluent l’amélioration de la participation aux réunions du Codex, un plaidoyer visant à accorder la plus haute importance aux travaux du Codex dans la région, l’optimisation de l’harmonisation des normes de sécurité sanitaire des aliments, et l’accélération du renouveau du Comité grâce au partage d’informations et à des mises à jour régulières sur les problématiques liées à la sécurité sanitaire des aliments dans la région.

La Chine souhaite également promouvoir la collaboration avec les organisations ayant le statut d’observateur et améliorer la communication entre les Membres régionaux de la FAO, l’OMS et le Secrétariat du Codex.
