China must come to terms with the fact that it hasquality problems in at least 1% of its products.Though there is no country in the world that cancompletely avoid problems, given the responsible role Chinaplays on the international stage, China should stop to take alook at itself and find ways to improve. China must examineherself carefully, when looking at the production chain; wehave to keep aware that some alarms still remain.
Some producers have a lack of legal and regulation sense.In this case, more of their attention is paid to how muchprofit they can make, and cutting costs is closely related toproduct's quality, which then increases the safety risk tocustomers. Some family-operated workshops still lack thebasic conditions for modern manufacturing.
The wholesale market requires more effective supervisionmeasures with regard to safety inspection and quality control.While continuing to improve, there are still a handful ofbootleggers that have let the wholesale market become anoutlet for their fake or poor-quality products.
Market entrance standards
Strict and high standards for entering the market arestill on the way. Currently, most business-operators on theoutskirts of cities and in rural areas are local farmers, migrantworkers, or laid-off workers from State-Owned-Enterprises.These small companies produce and sell very fewproducts, which allow some of them to open without aproper business license.
Supervision and regulation
From the farms to dinner tables, from raw materialsto well finished products, there are many interrelatedproduction chains and supervision departments.Different departments are responsible for differentfields and there is a lack of communication. Somemisunderstandings and overlapping responsibilitieswithout clear boundaries are another cause of theproblems.
China does have its problems: it is still a developingcountry, and one that wants to perform better in thecoming days. We alI know it is much better to encouragea newborn than to criticize him. so while some alarmsremain, China is doing its best to ease the pain. We canhelp to guide it and trust that it can do better in future.working together to lead it down the fast road of safetyand quality.
