Poor quality is there, no doubt about it.
China does a lot of COMPONENTS that other cuntries don't want, or have no labour/electricity to produce competitively.
Let's do a CASE STUDY on the two Asian nations at the same level of development THAILAND and CHINA.
Population 60 million 1,350 million
Rural population 50% 50%
Electricity capacity 0.5Kw/pax 0.75Kw/pax
Main commodity Rice, Rubber, Sugar Cane, Almost everything except tropical produce
Timber and shortage of cost effective minerals
Main Industries Automotive assembly, auto Shipyards, Automobile assembly, component
motive components, textiles, textiles-apparels, E&E manufacturing, Computer
computer data storage devices assembly, Menial worker for labour intensive
Advantage Cheap access to menial workers Cheap access to menial worker, cheap electricity
Plenty of water Plenty of water
(Many developed countries in the SURPLUS world import LABOUR INTENSIVE components from China, while the component that are AUTOMATED stays in their home country-till there is CAPITAL GOODS manufacturer can find a way to AUTOMATE it as well.)
Per capita income US$6,000 US$6,000
Issues>> finding way to URBANIZED, and improve EFFICIENCY is the RURAL sectors - while upgrading technological capacity to compete with the other SURPLUS world.
