(People's Daily Online) Products tagged with “made in China” have become an inseparable part of the world as China is gradually taking the globe with its incredible manufacturing industry.
Though Chinese products have already got rid of the image of low quality, there are still many foreigners, and even Chinese, who consider them a byword for cheap, low-end, and copycat commodities.
However, a recent Japanese TV show which conducted a survey on Chinese products has astonished those who looked down upon Chinese manufacturing.
At first, the respondents all expressed a demeaning attitude toward Chinese products, saying they’d never buy them. But obviously, the labels on their clothes which say “made in China” are indeed a slap in the face.
The TV show later did a test: Clear all the China-made products from a Japanese household. Four hours later, 619 pieces of Chinese products were removed, and even the clothes of the house owner had to be taken off.
As a matter of fact, Japanese not only need Chinese products when they are alive, but also after their death – over 90% of the coffins sold in Japan are made in China.
