Welcome to our December reflections & prediction series. Shall we welcome today's expert?
This is Wai Mun, I'm regulatory affairs consultant based in Singapore. I specialise in food and food supplements in regional capacity. I would like to share my thoughts on regulatory development in Asia region for the past one year. Though, like the rest of the world, the Asia region has been busy dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, that doesn't stop the interesting regulatory development. For example, we see Thailand become the first Asian country to approve the use of CBD oil in food and food supplements. As we approach the end of 2021, there are still more exciting development to look forward to next year. In February 2022, we are expecting to see the signing of the agreement or the ASEAN harmonised requirements for health supplements, something that industry has been looking forward to for more than a decade.
