None of it has anything to do with quality of life. And you must ask yourself this: "Does such trade and exchanging of goods improve my quality of living?" In China, there are too many social ills to deal with that no amount of money or trade could ever alleviate.

Yes I am but again, we can all do our bit to make sure that others obey the law as well, I am trying my best, not through fear of deportation but through a sense of moral responsibility. I could find cheaper good with non compliant suppliers but choose not to due to my morals. Every little helps.

That is true, but not everyone has your sense of moral responsibility.  Your beliefs are more common in MNC's and foreign owned small enterprises.  Much more than Chinese owned companies.

But as I said every little counts, if everyone convinces two other enterprises to follow the difference would quickly be felt.

I must say though that I had a chuckle a couple of years ago when I visited an area with a lot of small stallholders and saw that Government posters stating that it was honourable to pay your taxes. Wonder if this made others change their minds?

The local governments LOVE to be paid taxes.  Makes them feel powerful and allows them to drive Audis.  There is a local tax office near our factory.  A luxurious building with a parking lot full of imported cars.  Less than 300 meters away are shacks and shanties without sewer services and running water.  The tax office is located in a resort area.
