BEIJING - China plans to set up a strict law on the management of genetically modified food in response to nationwide concerns about the safety of related agricultural products.

The draft of a new grain law was posted on the website of the Legislative Affairs Office of the State Council on Tuesday for public comment until the end of March.

The draft requires that all activities related to GM seeds, including scientific research, field trials, production, sales, imports and exports, be carried out in accordance with the country's regulations.
