The Chief Executive of Brazilian regulatory authority Anvisa says the ongoing restructuring process at the agency is focused on the economic and social development of the country.

The agency reforms are in recognition of a new Brazilian regulatory approach aiming to have a broader effect on society, said Dirceu Barbano, chief executive of Anvisa, in remarks before the Brazilian Congress on 8 May.
