On the morning of November 15, 2019, Consul General Ruan Ping and Consul Kou Mengjun of the Consulate-General of China in Auckland visited CCIC New Zealand. At the meeting, they provided guidance to our work and visited our food testing laboratory.
General Manager Yuan Jiancheng briefed Consul General Ruan and Consul Kou on the vision, mission, qualifications and service areas of the China Certification and Inspection Group. Mr. Yuan introduced the key role and national responsibilities of the company in the construction of the “Belt and Road Initiative” and the national quality improvement strategy.
It was also briefed that CCIC New Zealand, as an overseas branch of the CCIC Group, had carried out work to facilitate China-New Zealand trade, as well as to ensure the product safety and quality compliance of New Zealand food exported to China. Such work had been carried out under the guidance of the idea of “being a good national team and creating a national brand name”, and included certification, testing, overseas pre-inspection, traceability and promotion of Chinese regulations and standards.
It was discussed in depth regarding the regulatory requirements for the production and quality supervision of dairy and nutrition products in China and New Zealand. Through the Traceability Cloud Platform, Mr. Yuan showcased some of the cooperative businesses that had entered Chinese market and expanded their businesses through CCICNZ’s tracing services.
Executive Officer Lu Ming introduced to Consul General Ruan the testing capabilities and construction of the food testing laboratory. Consul General Ruan affirmed the positive role of CCIC New Zealand in China-New Zealand trade as an overseas quality inspection agency. It is also recognised that overseas quality inspection and traceability systems play an important role in ensuring food safety. Mr. Ruan urges us to tell the Chinese story and keep Chinese people assured regarding food safety, and that to seize the opportunities in 5G development and fast technological renovation.
Mr. Ruan also advised to strengthen the cooperation with IT industry giants, and realise the potential of the CCIC traceability system. It was everyone’s hope for CCIC New Zealand to become a key for kiwi businesses to open the door to Chinese market, and to increase the accessibility of New Zealand’s high-quality products and natural food in Chinese market.
