China’s Commerce Department announced an increase in enforcement over counterfeit products in China, including medicines, said Jiang Zengwei at a news conference, as he promised closer cooperation with the United States, Japan and Europe.

According to the Associated Press reporting in the Washington Post, trade groups say Chinese goods piracy is growing despite repeated attempts to stamp it out with increased penalities and crackdowns. American officials say phony Chinese-made heart and anti-cancer medications have been found “as far away as Africa,” reports the Washington Post. The latest six-month campaign will target phony and falsely labeled goods including medicine, software, and organic corn.
