and ensure stringent quarantine measures; secure the safety of animals and livestock products preemptively
by strengthening risk assessment to actively respond to changes in quarantine conditions
O Create a better environment with increased support to boost agricultural exports by providing one-stop
support for promising export items; enhance the support system for new growth industries including foreign
seed production; ensure the safety and equivalence of quarantine measures
O Improve quality control of veterinary medicinal products to promote exports and industrial development;
enhance animal protection and welfare and encourage public participation in the field
O Establish a "smart R&D" system to realize the creative economy; pursue field-oriented R&D projects to
