MOFCOM spokesman comments on New Zealand clothes test

On October 17, the New Zealand Ministry of Consumer Affairs posted on its website the result of the formaldehyde test it conducted on 99 items of Chinese clothes.

According to the Ministry, among the 99 items, 97 did not contain or contained formaldehyde lower than the country's standard, and the two items that contained formaldehyde higher than the standard could lower its formaldehyde content through simple cleaning. The test result of New Zealand authority showed that Chinese clothes were safe.

We noticed the wide publicity of high formaldehyde content in Chinese clothes on New Zealand media since August this year. The test that New Zealand government conducted and the result it released proved that Chinese products were safe. China appreciated the objective attitude of New Zealand in handling this issue.

Chinese government attached great importance to product quality and safety. A series of recent measures to tighten quality control and food safety control would significantly improve the quality and reputation of Chinese products.

According to the China Customs, China exported about 290 million US dollars worth of clothes to New Zealand, accounting for 70.5% of its apparel market. In the formaldehyde test that New Zealand conducted this time, Chinese exports made up 84% of the tested clothes.
