Salaries are still far away from western levels. Moreover I know of quite a few companies which wi ...

It should read

"salaries of main consuming markets such as Western (USA), Asian Pacific Rim (Asian Trade Route States), European Union (Continental states), British Dominions (Australia, Britain, Canada, Jamaica, Falklands, New  Zealand, Gibraltar and Russia, Mexico, Brazil.)"

Zglobal is comparing "minimum wage levels" only!
Lowest in China Vs lowest in Western (USA - which is only 20% of China's market).....

hmmmmm

How long will China stay competitive? My personal guess is for much of the 21st century. There are ...

Vietnam, Java and probably Myanmar will gain advantage.

It's a matter of strategies.
Depends a lot on Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, Japan, USA, EU decisions and local decisions in Vietnam, Java and Myanmar. (Luzon seems not to be interested in Assembly industry relocation!)

Assembly industry is a BIG RANGE of trades, it'll be dependent on many factors.

As for FOXCONN, the design and probably future innovations will point towards a AUTOMATED production system, if volumes are sufficient. There would be a lot of REDESIGN to fit R-1 type Robots (NC-sequence assembly).

It's hard to explain such MASSIVE RANGE of human products!

Cheerios!

Mr. Zglobal.........

Many of the USA imports are actually OUTSOURCED products produced by companies in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaya and Singapore. Of course there is direct investment by USA companies in China - but is rather tricky due to China's complex laws.

Myanmar, Java and Vietnam has some 300 million citizens to ABSORBED any relocations.
Like we said, there are other factors besides "cheap labour".
In the USA, STOOP labour is not popular - even employers pay minimum wage, they cannot get the workers - probably we should send SHAOLIN over to indoctrinate some motivated happy citizens to join the stoop labour industry!

ha ha ha

Cheerios!

A huge proportion of Chinese still stay in a poor livelihood duo to the new classified national standard on how to set the poverty annual income. It is too early to say China has lost its advantage in international trade market. The demography dividend will last at least ten years and main obstacle to maintain it is extent at which we thrust the coverage of education in areas afield.

Meanwhile, if the situation that China can not compete with other Southeastern nations after one decade is true, the alternative to compete with them is technology transformation mentioned so many times these years. As human resource is shorted at perspective of quantity, quality is a indispensable aspect which we must emphasize. Frankly, China's status in 2020 will depend on efforts we make from now on. If we can make the change, we will take a solid step on route through which we attain our reviving dream since 1840.
