Chinese national political advisors discussed improving the regulation of the food delivery sector at a bi-weekly seminar on Friday.
The seminar, held by the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), China’s top political advisory body, was presided over by Wang Yang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the CPPCC National Committee.
Wang stressed innovation in the supervision and regulation, calling for efforts to promote the sound development of the food delivery market and ensure people’s health and safety.
Political advisors and specially invited representatives put forward their suggestions, while nearly 60 political advisors voiced their opinions via an online platform.
They noted the contributions made by the food delivery services in the fight against COVID-19, including ensuring that people’s basic needs were met, and creating jobs.
Stressing the bottom line of safety, and the necessity of fair competition, they said relevant laws and rules should be improved to better regulate the market’s various links, including procurement, processing, packaging, and delivery.
They also urged relevant service platforms to strengthen the qualification examination of restaurants, noting that the review, complaint, and compensation mechanisms for consumers should also be improved.
