absolutely, i am sure that you will find a personal belonging that is made in china. whenever i buy something out of a store, i just have this habit on checking where the stuff i bought is made: my laptop, mobile phone, cordless mouse, portable hard drive – most of the gadgets i have is made in china.. my bullcap, a shirt, a pair of pants, my flipflops..
the average labor costs of industries in China are only 5 percent of those in developed countries like the United States, Japan and Germany.
but is china exploiting cheap labor? foreign investors sees this as a low priced, quality labor resource, and referred to as the country’s say to world competitiveness. reality is, it’s just not china that offers cheap labor , include india, pakistan, vietnam, indonesia, mexico, brazil and not to forget my own home country, the philippines, amongst others.
so is everything made in china? hmm..
i was munching some “skittles” candies last night and of course was checking the foil packaging – funny thing was it was manufactured in huairou, beijing, china.
