Wal-Mart recently held a meeting in Beijing during which they discussed plans to improve saftey at their manufacturing locations. In addition they will insist that factories producing goods for Wal-Mart follow strict safety regulations. The best news was that they will put into place a way for goods to be tracked back to the location where they were made. Also, food products will be tightly regulated. This comes at a time when Wal-Mart and other retailers, plus the Chinese factories, are worried about consumer consumption and a drop off in the global market.
