A bilateral meeting between Ghulam Nabi Azad, union minister of health & family welfare, and Kate Wilkinson, New Zealand minister of conservation & food safety, was held in New Delhi on Tuesday.

In his welcome address, Azad said India was a member of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and committed to comply with the Sanitary and Phyto-Sanitary Standards (SPS) and Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) agreements.

The representatives of the New Zealand High Commission had met the chairperson, Food Safety & Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) on September 27, 2012. In line with that discussion, India would await the draft MoU agreement to strengthen cooperation in the area of food safety and inspections for mutual benefit.

Senior officers of the ministry assisted Azad in the bilateral meeting.
