关于“劣质中国制造”的反驳

7/6/2009, 今天的本地公报发表了一篇有关中国制造的社论。这份报纸的立场一贯反华,发表这样的社论不足为奇。我也并非第一次写信回去表明我作为一个华人的立场,这一次我也写了一点。以前他们曾经发表过我的去信,这次是否能发表我也不抱太大希望,只希望让他们看到我们的意见,听到我们的声音。 )(R1}ln_=z

Re:Shoddy merchandise: the new China Syndrome (July 6 2009) Q5(_R()l  
:[:}TNd@  
You can really say that some Chinese goods are in bad quality or have some long-term problems for people's health,but you cann't say that all Chinese goods are shoddy merchandise.Don't forget even your iphone, or part of Bombardier's new airplane are made in China also.  Q:iDdE[  
One truth is that more than 95% of imported Chinese goods to western countries use local brands. They are only made in China, but they are still western companies's products. Chinese manufactures should take care of their quality, those importers also should do the same thing. duej D]0  
The only reason that Chinese goods can be cheap is that Chinese workers can endure lower salaries and China is sacrisfying her enviroment to be "factory of the world".  If western importers can give reasonable purchasing price to those Chinese suppliers, maybe that is a better way to improve the quality of goods from China than to warn local customers to be "caveat emptor". a"oMZfHc{

Shoddy merchandise: the new China Syndrome r/v;Xs  
The GazetteJuly 6, 2009 V #u[Xj `  
Toxic drywall, of all things, now joins the long list of faulty Chinese goods that have found their way to North American markets, along with coffee makers and cellphones that overheat and catch fire, shredding tires, and poisonous children's toys. r 8(tu\v

Consumers can often simply throw away defective coffee makers and the like, but toxic drywall - which emits dangerous gases - promises to be a far costlier problem. The flawed product has been found in 41 states and three provinces - British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario. This is being called the worst case of "sick houses" in U.S. history. 1+K6%C

But even as the U.S. moves to consolidate drywall lawsuits, lawyers admit that holding Chinese manufacturers accountable is extremely difficult - largely because international law inevitably lags behind international trade. Laws are corrective measures. Opportunities come first, then problems; remedies arrive later. /F__fOJqJ

In earlier "factory to the world" models - like Japan in the post-war years - problems associated with breakneck growth sorted themselves out. Standards rose to meet consumer expectations and import requirements. *A=M;C-(

But in China, the quality cycle is spinning backward. In his book, Poorly Made in China, manufacturing expert Paul Midler charges that some Chinese manufacturers, eager to win foreign contracts, will submit bids so low that no profit is possible. Once such a Chinese manufacturer wins a contract, it proceeds to cut corners, sometimes endangering customers, of whom there are millions worldwide. C(*! Hu'O

In the U.S., Chinese products account for 40 per cent of imported goods. Their recall rate is huge: Chinese goods make up 69 per cent of all U.S. recalls of goods both imported and domestic, and the rate is climbing: It was 53 per cent last year. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's most recent report found that defective and even dangerous products such as lead toys continue to be shipped into the U.S., despite having been placed on recall lists. 5k^7

Canadians are not immune: China has been our second-largest source for imports, after the U.S., since 2002. i4?H%ws

Western consumers often expect to be protected by government, and have been caught off-guard by what feels like an avalanche of shoddy merchandise. But in fact it would be impossible to inspect and test rigorously all the merchandise that flows into this country. RmB>ABU  
\8y)(8g  
The usual solution to defective manufacturing - exposure followed by some kind of judicial or government action - is difficult in the case of China. Chinese officials don't want exposure; nor do those Chinese manufacturers who cut corners. There is no free press. Outside media or manufacturing experts are not allowed free access to factories.

Faced with mounting criticism, China recently introduced a food-safety law. Critics point out, however, that few enforcement mechanisms exist. v="q(KNwF  
E)iTN"q=  
Cheap goods can be too cheap. Each new case of a dangerously flawed product prompts importers, Western retailers, and consumers to push back harder against shoddy goods; eventually Chinese law and practice will squeeze out most abuses. But until then: well, what's the Chinese for caveat emptor? [38KN :x
