China's food and drug safety situation is improving steadily, in general, but still face acute problems, Fu Zhenghua, minister of justice, said, adding strict supervision and severe punishment will be on offer to better protect the country's food and drug safety.

"We will use the most stringent regulatory measures and the most strict punishment to promote the continuous improvement of food and drug safety and ensure what people eat and use are safe," Fu said on Tuesday during a "passage interview" on the sidelines of the ongoing two sessions..

China will continue to improve legislation and amend relevant laws to tackle the problems of low crime costs and lenient punishment, Fu said, adding that laws related to food and drug safety should be strict, hard and tough and serve as a "high-voltage line" to safeguard people's safety.
