World Bank approves loan for China food safety project

The World Bank has approved a $400 million loan to help China improve food safety management and reduce food safety risks.

The cost of foodborne diseases in terms of human capital productivity loss in China is estimated at more than $30 billion per year, almost 50 percent of the total economic burden of foodborne infections in Asia, according to the World Bank.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated food safety challenges in processing, packaging, and transporting agricultural products. Improvements in food safety standards are important for China’s trading partners and agricultural export competitiveness.

The China Food Safety Improvement Project will strengthen regulations, enforcement, and compliance along value chains including seafood, pork, fruit and vegetables consistent with global practices. The total cost is $735 million.

It will promote scientific and evidence-based enforcement of food safety regulations at the provincial and municipal levels using risk-based approaches.

The project will be implemented by the … Read more

The Paycheck Protection Program has helped keep many small businesses, including restaurants and bars, afloat during the pandemic

In a 92-to-seven vote yesterday, the Senate voted to extend the Paycheck Protection Program, which otherwise would have expired on March 31. Businesses now have until May 31 to apply for a loan. This round of PPP, passed as part of Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, allocated $7 billion to expand PPP funding, which should make it easier for businesses to pay bills beyond payroll. The extension also gives the Small Business Association until June 30 to process loan applications, which will hopefully allow them to address any application backlog.

The stimulus program got off to a rocky start, with chain restaurants receiving loans, while smaller, independent restaurants struggled to apply. Black, Latinx and Asian business received a smaller portion of funds than their white counterparts, … Read more

Justice Department takes historic level of enforcement against COVID-19 fraud

When Texan Dinesh Sah pleaded guilty this week to orchestrating a fraudulent scheme to lift $17 million from the Paycheck Protection Progam’s forgivable loan program, it might have been a solo act of someone who was all hat and no cattle just getting in the wrong line at USDA’s Service Center.
But instead, it turns out to be the beginning of enforcement by the Department of Justice on massive amounts of pandemic relief contained in recent congressional appropriations.  Food and agricultural sectors are the targets of much of this government spending and the DOJ is making it known that fraud schemes that always follow the money this time won’t be tolerated.
Sah, 55 of Coppell, TX, was not at all confused about his $17 million fraud on the PPP loan funds. He quickly diverted the funds into home purchases in Texas and California along with a fleet of luxury cars
