The EU called on China to pay more attention to product safety and give details on its protective measures, the Wall Street Journal reported. The request was made by EU Consumer Commissioner Meglena Kuneva during talks with Li Changjiang, head of China's General Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, yesterday. Chinese goods accounted for almost half of all products deemed unsafe for sale last year in the EU. China's exports to the EU totaled US$266 billion last year. The EU is China's top trading partner. The EU joins the US in increasing monitoring of Chinese exports in the wake of Chinese product-safety scandals worldwide.
