Chinese Regulators Visit U.S. to Study its Regulatory SystemAugust 10, 2016
Regulators from China's Ministry of Agriculture met with the members of the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) in the U.S. to discuss the need to better synchronize regulatory systems and the importance U.S. farmers place upon the availability of new technologies. The meeting was part of the three-month program of Dr. Nicholas Kalaitzandonakes of the University of Missouri – Columbia, through which the officials will investigate how the U.S. regulatory testing system functions.
