The Growing Dangers Of Trade China Is Getting Worse


www.theglobeandmail.com

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.
Almost 20 per cent of goods made in China for domestic consumption have failed China's own standards for safety or quality in the first half of this year, a government agency reported this week.

As if it were not bad enough that China is exporting dangerous food/goods around the world now their greed even endangers there own citizens on a new High speed train. What makes it even worse as noted in the article near the end the Government censors are tearing pages out of Time Magazine to cover it up..

Note the article claims 20 percent of the products are bad by their standards not ours which makes it even worse.

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.

Secondly, it's not possible to test and examine every single item that comes from China to see whether it's safe or not. Even testing one or two items per batch might not be good enough, since faults could be random and not in particular batches of items.

And thirdly... governments and businesses alike want things cheap and quick. China provides these two qualities by the boatload. At present no other nation has the capacity to produce things as quickly, cheaply or easily as it's presently done in China (land is relatively cheap, workers are paid a pittance, there are no trade unions to deal with, working conditions don't have to be anywhere near Western standards).

Ultimately, the answer is money. They want more money and they want it fast - China is the goose that lays the golden eggs in that respect.

I realize that, however they most certainly do have the power to stop the importing of the product until the product/problem is fixed.

Who was one of the first countries to ban import of Beef from Canada and th US? China that is who, yet Canadian and Americans governments are doing nothing. :shk: It is a Disgrace if you ask me.

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.

First this is about shoddy work and shoddy/defective products done WITHIN China that the first lot you mentioned have nothing to do with.

Now show me where the Government of China is being abused.

In other words, as long as consumers keep buying Chinese products they will be acceptable.

We live in a capitalistic and all for profits nation and people wants cheap goods, corporate American are offering that to consumers and as long as we buy the profits are good.

Corporate America do not care how bad or dangerous the product is. that is the government responsibility, but right now the agencies that inspect our imported goods are under staff and been under budget.

So the only way to stop the dangerous goods coming from China is to boycott China goods.

But only the consumer can push that.


That will mean people will have to boycott Wal-mart

If there's a faulty rail construction issue in China,
they will sure have to clean it up quick....as the 2008 summer Olympics
are fast approaching.


The fast paced mega-cities building boom in China that presents
China's regulatory & inspection branches with 'problems'
.. the mess could be looked at by China's old guard & Right Wingers, as capitalistic/enterprise run amok!


their an economy in transition & change...
& all the profiteers are willing to accept a certain ammount of inefficiencies and less than ethical practices as China gets ramped up into globalization...
the rationale is 'whats a few lives, thats a price of progress' to the Globalization Elites in the world.




ADD: here's a little piece about the China mess which is related;
