Through the APEC Food Safety Cooperation Forum and together with the APEC Sub-Committee on Standards and Conformance, APEC is working to enhance food safety standards and food testing capacities in the region through laboratory training. For example, in a recent APEC project, scientists in Chile and China received in-laboratory training on innovative rapid detection methods for salmonella and e-coli bacteria. For more information, see the recent APEC Bulletin article on improving food safety.
