The Chinese answer to the West – “Made in China” to “Made by China”

There is this flippant yet popular joke that goes like this: if you clone yourself four times, one will be Chinese! That says it all about the manner in which the world perceives the ubiquitous Chinese – populated and copycats. There’s no doubt, China has become numinously overpowering and has integrated itself into the lives of people all across the globe by their sheer human power and the power to produce goods and services at a prodigiously unprecedented pace and volume.

So much so that from Greenland to Antarctica, and from Middle East to Europe, if one were to try and search the origin of the products used in these countries on a daily basis, in all probability the ‘origin’ would turn out to be China. Be it your cell phone or the laptop, or even the engine of your car, everything turns out to be made in China. An original iPhone or even its look-a-like (with similar or more features), both are made in China. In fact, all this is known. But what is mostly unknown is the infrangible might that the Chinese have garnered today with their home-grown products and brands.

Not only is China manufacturing almost all goods for Western companies, but it also has gained a huge impelling momentum with its own domestic production. Today, stellar Chinese companies are topping various global lists in terms of revenue, market share, size and scale; but more than that, their sterling products are also acting as alternatives – or even better replacements – for Western products within and outside China. Today, the Chinese have a “Made by China” option with similar features and quality for almost every known Western brand, which are also anyway made in China.

This article good describe to china is most developed countrys because its most efficient and dynamic industrial hub with a GDP of $143 billion and a per capita income of $13,111. Women’s employment rate in Guangzhou was 70.84% in 2010 (which increased by three fold since the last one decade) and around 2.5 million urban women are working in the city. Women constitute 40 percent of the total workforce. Better lifestyle and financial freedom also escalated the social fabric of the city. The most important factor, when it comes to women development, was that the life expectancy rate is now pegged to have reached 81.33 years (again, an increase by 4.5 years in the last one decade). Even the education rate has seen a major surge; more than 49 per cent of total graduates are women and can be seen actively working in the health, science, technology and education sectors.

China pursues is peaceful and open development of cooperation and win-win progress. China will not seek development at the cost of other's interests. Our approach is to make the cake bigger and bring more development opportunities to the whole world.

China’s own loans to developing nations have now eclipsed World Bank lending. In the period between 2009 and 2010, the FT report estimates that two Chinese development banks the China Development Bank and the China Export Import Bank have provided $110 billion to businesses and governments in developing countries.

China, a country with one of the world’s largest wind energy potentials, has seen tremendous growth in its wind power development in recent years. Yet Chinese manufacturers are still struggling to break into their own nation’s lucrative wind turbine industry. In 2005, domestic companies accounted for only 23 percent of China’s cumulative installed turbine market.

The Chinese government is likely to provide at least some financial support to local producers. Ren Dongming, Deputy Director of the Renewable Energy Development Center of the Energy Research Institute at the National Development Reform Commission, says his organization has already submitted a Public Benefits Fund (PBF) proposal to the Ministry of Finance. As with the similar System Benefits Funds that exist in some U.S. states, the PBF is designed to fund certain “public benefits” that are generally not accounted for in electricity markets. “The fund will be used to support research and development of renewable energy and assist renewable energy companies with subsidized loans and the like,” Ren explains. The proposal is likely to be approved in the near term.

Because Chinese manufacturers know that they cannot be matched anywhere else, and also that their Western customers prefer continuity in their supply chain, they feel comfortable nibbling away at quality levels, despite whatever contracts they may have signed. Product failures are, in effect, the result of a game that is being played and lost by Western companies in China.

China exports totaled $1.194 trillion, down from $1.429 trillion in 2008. It’s main exports are electrical goods and other machinery, including data processing equipment, apparel, textiles, iron and steel, optical and medical equipment;

Made in China is one of the most recognizable labels in the world today due to rapidly developing China's large manufacturing industry. And this industry and this brand name “Made in China” also hit the world super power USA

The direction for the next five years is to move the Chinese automotive industry up the value chain and, for example, for China to become leaders in the green energy vehicle sector. The 12.5 plan includes objectives and funding for the sector to develop a new energy car where 1m units could be produced by 2015. With over urbanization and cities like Shanghai restricting the number of non-electric car registrations, going green is high on the agenda and is perhaps the golden prize of the automotive industry.

China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) in its 2010 report declared Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC) as the largest auto manufacturer selling over 3,558,400 cars in just one year. SAIC is followed by Dongfeng, FAW, Changan and Beihing Auto. Domestic car manufacturers control over 85 percent of the total car market in China. China’s top ten companies sold over 15 million cars in 2010. These companies make all types of cars ranging from low cost cars to high end cars.

China has become one of the world's leading destinations for foreign direct investment (FDI) since the Chinese government opted to reform the economy and open it to foreign trade and investment. Inflows of FDI, which accelerated at the time of China's accession to the WTO in 2001, have been an important factor in promoting rapid economic growth and technological progress. However, there remains substantial potential for a greater inflow of long-term, high-technology, high-value-added FDI from OECD countries.

The Chinese economy is dynamic and complex. It has undergone rapid as well as radical structural changes over the past three decades since economic reform began in 1978. At the beginning of the reform, China was a closed economy with a highly undeveloped economic development. It has now become one of the most important players in the global economy in international trade, international finance, international environmental development, and many other areas.

Still, China’s advantages in certain key sectors of manufacturing easily outweigh some of the recent disadvantages. One advantage is the supplier network and infrastructure that developed in China over the past four decades. For example, China retains the advantage in some key sectors like electronics which need an ecosystem of large component suppliers. In such a case, a US electronic firm that wants to manufacture mobile phones will be better off producing it in China because all the sub components required to produce the phone can be more easily sourced in China. In contrast, firms like Caterpillar, which do not have such disincentives to move away from China, could still hunt for manufacturing bases that offer more advantages.

subhash said...

The nature of the relationship between Chinese suppliers and Western importers is the key to the problem. Chinese factories are typically paid for their wares before they are shipped, so they have every reason to cut a corner or two.

China, is waiting it out for this kind of equilibrium in China. Thanks in part to increasing real wages among China’s workers, the company feels more Chinese consumers will flaunt its accessories. Coach plans to triple its sales in China to $500 million in the next four years from $100 million now. But by the time China’s domestic market for its bags catches up, the New York-based company would have cut its global production capacity in China to 40-50% from the current 80%.

China has made extraordinarily rapid progress in modernization since the introduction of the reform and opening-up policy over 30 years ago because China's political system, which suits its level of development of productive forces, can improve decision-making and implementation efficiency, concentrate resources on major tasks and increase the ability to mobilize. Furthermore, socialism with Chinese characteristics advocates reform and innovation on the basis of learning as well as self-correction and pursuit of truth on the basis of practicing.

Many major electronics corporations such as Apple, Sony, and Motorola have set up manufacturing factories in China. It seems that the increasing appetite for electronic gadgets worldwide have introduced and led to the bloom of Chinese Electronic Factories and set the Chinese factories as an important supplier of the new market demands. China wholesale electronics products gain popularity from their high quality and low priced products that attract much attention from electronic giants such as Apple, Sony, and Motorola.

China has become the world’s first internal combustion engine manufacturing power – engine oil – construction machinery industry. Today China has a industrial power in the world.

Good one...thoughtful. Jst because of corruption that we r lagging behind. But we r far much bettr in quality, in intellgnce, than those chines. So try towards the motive to remove corruption. So in future we can give a strng statmnt like them. Till now 'Be Indian Buy Indian'.

When you ask if this high speed train was made in China the answer is yes and no. This train was assembled in China but the technology to build this train was invented by other people. The high speed Interurban train was invented by the US in 1903.

The Chinese wholesale electronic markets offer consumers and re-sellers a quick and profitable resource to build sales. Ordering in bulk from China and selling at competitive prices is a sure-fire way to make money.

Low-priced "made in China" products filled the shelves in the US for the past decade. However, the surging labor costs coupled with the appreciation of the yuan has been challenging China's status as the world's factory.

pramod singh kandasi said...

Is China's economic growth largely dependent on exports, or is it becoming more domestically led? That's a question economists are vigorously debating--and an important one for policy makers and executives alike. An increasingly consumption- and investment-focused Chinese economy could improve the chances of more balanced trading relationships with developed economies. At the same time, businesses operating in China or planning to enter it could find greater opportunities as the economy accelerated its transition from a manufacturing center to a key consumer market.

pramod singh kandasi said...

Since 1978, China has reformed and opened its economy. The Chinese leadership has adopted a more pragmatic perspective on many political and socioeconomic problems, and has reduced the role of ideology in economic policy. China's ongoing economic transformation has had a profound impact not only on China but on the world. The market-oriented reforms China has implemented over the past 2 decades have unleashed individual initiative and entrepreneurship. The result has been the largest reduction of poverty and one of the fastest increases in income levels ever seen. China today is the third-largest economy in the world, and is projected to overtake Japan to become second-largest by the end of 2010. It has sustained average economic growth of over 9.5% for the past 26 years. In 2009 its $4.814 trillion economy was about one-third the size of the U.S. economy.

In the 1980s, China tried to combine central planning with market-oriented reforms to increase productivity, living standards, and technological quality without exacerbating inflation, unemployment, and budget deficits. China pursued agricultural reforms, dismantling the commune system and introducing a household-based system that provided peasants greater decision-making in agricultural activities. The government also encouraged non-agricultural activities such as village enterprises in rural areas, and promoted more self-management for state-owned enterprises, increased competition in the marketplace, and facilitated direct contact between Chinese and foreign trading enterprises. China also relied more upon foreign financing and imports.

pramod singh kandasi said...

According to statistics released by the General Administration of Customs on 10 April, China's quarterly trade balance turned red from January to March this year, the country's first quarterly trade deficit in six years. Surging import volumes, readjusted RMB exchange rates and rising commodity prices are lying behind this trade deficit figure. China's exports increased 26.5 percent year on year, while imports soared 32.6 percent from a year earlier.

1)ELECTRICITY IS RE1.80/-
2)Labour is 4000/-per month
3)housing is free for labours from govt
4)from factory to port transport is free
These and more such things
But what makes china competitive
Faster decisions
Clusters for different industries
A huge domestic market attracts FFI
...........WE NEED FASTER DECISIONS ONLY
WE ARE NO.1
THOSE WHO HOLD DECISIONS TO MANIPULATE

Sir,

Surely there are a lesson or two to be learn from the leaders in any field, I think it is very difiicult to emulate excellence and needs a winner to do just that.

Thats why I think China should not be written off as clones.

They have a BOP 10 times compared to India. They sure mean business and India can take a leaf out of the Chinese Juggernaut.

oops did I mean FOREX instead of BOP, and they also have a big Positive trade balance with US.
