Sure, most Chinese companies started from the bottom and some worked for foreign famous brands first. For instance, Chinese car maker Brillance at the begining started as an OEM of BMW, after it has mastered the know-how in car making, it introduced its own brand:Junjie which is considered as a mid-level passenger car .

Wan,

I have an odd question for you, actually. In the US and Europe, the plethora of car companies were rapidly reduced to a handful with the former companies becoming brands of the latter. How have independent car companies fared in China or are they already heading towards conglomeratization?

Japanese cars were considered garbage for decades even though they were helped by U.S.
Korean cars were considered garbage for decades even though they were helped by U.S.

China cars are already becoming better faster than Japan and Korea and even U.S. companies do in China what they never did in Japan and Korea. U.S. companies are making cars in China and selling cars in China and they never did that in Japan and Korea.

In less time that it took Japan to start making good cars, China will be making even better cars. Korea might never make good cars.

YOu must be joking.

We see all the nice furniture "made in China" at Ikea.
We see all the plasma TV "made in China" at our local hypermarket.
We see those very high quality "vacumn tube" speakers "made in China" at our local hypermarket.
We see all those toys, robots, soft toys, parlour games, branded clothes at our department and specialty stores.
We see all those nice mp3 players, mobile phones, computers, also "made in China".

and now we are seeing "adequate quality" car, trucks from China.

China is making better and better products, albeit tailored to markets that can afford it.
Afterall, you cannot have a US$2 trillion foreign trade if you made "crap".

Just understand "jealousy" is a big issue in the United States.

Because of this, it will find any way to "discredit" China as it did with "Korea, Japan and in the past Germany".


It's rather pleasing that the ex-world hyperpower regards China as a competitor.

Afterall now, the world no longer has such, only 5 BIG POWERs.



cheerios!
