Fake construction material is jeopardizing the safety of China's newest high-speed railway, a Chinese newspaper says.
The report is the latest revelation in the widening scandal over shoddy and hazardous goods in China. The issue has emerged as a global concern, with many countries, including Canada, increasingly worried by the dangers of food and other products from China.

My question is why do the governments of the world continue to allow China to export faulty goods to their countries?

Well, in many countries it's the big businesses who do most of the importing so governments aren't entirely to blame.

Dont forget its american importers, middlemen, shippers, and transportation systems that make the money, and create pressure to perform under unrealistic deadlines.
The Chinese companies are just as abused by world trade systems as the end users.
