Following the resolution 103 of 2014 by ISO/TMB that gave China the responsibility for appointing technical chairs and the establishment of ISO/TC293 Secretariat (Feed machinery), the giant player in feed machinery industry－FAMSUN Holdings－was then honored to assume the secretariat of ISO/TC293 and its counterpart of domestic technologies. The inaugural meeting of feed machinery technical committee of International Organization for Standardization (ISO/TC293) was held on May 20 in Yangzhou, Jiangsu Province.
