  On May 15th, Zhang Mao, Administrator of the State Administration for Market Supervision, met with Blairo Maggie, Minister of Agriculture, Livestock, and Supply of Brazil and his team in Beijing.  

  Zhang Mao first introduced the functions and reform status of the State Administration for Market Regulation. He said that General Secretary Xi Jinping made a solemn commitment at the 2018 annual meeting of the Boao Forum for Asia, “China's open doors will not be closed, but will only open wider and wider.” China has always been an active advocate and participant in economic globalization and free trade. China is Brazil's largest trading partner and export market, and Brazil is China's largest trading partner in Latin America. Both countries are major food producers and consumers, and the economic and trade exchanges between food, fruits and meat products are close. Their counterparts have carried out long-term and effective cooperation in the field of ensuring food safety and agricultural products safety. According to Brazil's request, in order to assess and verify the validity of Brazilian enterprises' registration system with China, CNCA plans to send a review expert group to Cuba in the near future to conduct spot check review on newly registered meat enterprises.  

  Zhang Mao indicates that the State Administration for Market Supervision has established bilateral cooperation mechanisms with relevant Brazilian departments in the fields of anti-monopoly and unfair competition, quality and safety, food and drug, consumer protection and intellectual property rights, and has maintained good cooperation relations under the BRICS framework. The Administration is willing to work with the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Supply of Brazil to further consolidate and improve the level of food safety cooperation between the two countries, carry out practical cooperation in the fields of food supervision, agricultural standardization and certification, and jointly create favorable conditions for consumer health and safety of the two countries and bilateral food and agricultural products trade. 

  Blairo Maggie said that Brazil-China relations are close and friendly. Brazil supports trade liberalization and opposes unilateralism. Brazil is a trustworthy supplier of agricultural products. At present, measures are being taken to supervise meat products, making the supervision process open and transparent. Brazil is willing to supply safe and reliable agricultural products to China. 

  The two sides also exchanged views on the registration of Brazilian meat enterprises in China.
