    Are the products from China low in quality

    Up until two decades ago, the products manufactured in China were considered inferior in quality to products coming from Western or other Asian countries. Importers preferred products from Japan, Korea, Taiwan, as opposed to products imported from China. But over the past 20 years there has been a revolution in the production of consumer goods a

      Mysterious Coronavirus virus in China: How does this affect imports to the US

      The coronavirus that erupted in China and continued to spread around the world is worrying quite a few people in the US. Especially the consumers who buy quite a lot from Chinese factories. So, is it possible to infect the Coronavirus from a package that came from China?

       

      We decided to investigate it, and these are the experts' answers:

      An infection expert claims that there is no need to worry about opening packages that come from China. "The virus is transmitted only through humans or animals. Unlike a bacterium, a virus must have an organism to survive, which means it must be on a cell, so it is transmitted through saliva," she says.

       

      Does it matter how the package arrives - by air, by sea, by land?

      "No. It's hard to believe that a package will contain saliva, but even so, the virus is undergoing a long journey and extreme weather changes and therefore the chance of surviving is nil."

       

      What about packages that cont

      Is Vietnam a real substitute for importing products from China?

      Vietnam is a state that cannot be ignored but importing from Vietnam or exporting to Vietnam requires a genuine understanding of the business world in the country.

      Vietnam's impressive growth has only been preceded by China recently, and any corporation seeking outsourcing cannot afford to ignore the country. Vietnam's development is not Western, but it is more open and attentive to Western moods than its neighbors. Vietnam's achievements because of, or despite, the government's hard work, cheap manpower (even in relation to Thailand and China) and the potential investors are seeing now that its growth potential is still high.

      Will China remain the factory of the world?

      China has been nicknamed the "factory of the world" for a reason, businesses from all over the world have already realized that in order to streamline, sell at a greater profit and reduce costs to a minimum, one must turn to China.

      In the past decade, China has positioned itself high on the highest-paying exporting countries, not only because of its competitive prices but also because of the high-quality manufacturing technologies it has developed over the years and continues to the high level of service it provides to its importers.

      Other developing countries such as India, the Philippines, Malaysia and more can compete in China for the price but not quality, not at the production level and, moreover, at the service and the consistency level and will take quite a few years to qualify for the current level of China in the qua

      4 Manufacturing Technology Trends to Watch in 2020

      The McKinsey Global Institute reports that U.S. manufacturers have the possibility to boost their overall value by up to $530 billion. That’s a 20% increase by 2025. In order to do so, the industry of manufacturers must take full advantage of the technologies that are coming out recently. In order to achieve those numbers, manufacturers must put aside their old processes and look towards technology in order to achieve the number above.

      Since China is starting to outsource manufacturing products to other countries, how will “Made in China 2025” hold up?

      What exactly is being manufactured out of China? Pretty much everything. But here is a list of the top 10 products that have been manufactured in 2019 and will be

      1.Computers: It shouldn’t come as a surprise that computers are one of the top products that have been and will continue to be manufactured in China in 2019. considering the price of materials is cheaper overseas, it only makes sense that China would lead the industry in its production of computers.

      2. Cell Phones: According to world top export China has seen a 105% increase in cell phone manufacturing since 2010. Bouncing off of the point made before, technology is advanced in China. It’s not a surprise that cell phones would be a huge import from China.

      What are the 6 fatal errors that cause E-commerce stores to close already in the first year?

      Selling your products online through an E-commerce can be a brilliant idea that will bring you a lot of money. Instead of paying rent, office equipment, recruiting workers, etc, you can just sell to a passerby. You can invest a lot less money and resources by opening an online store and selling your products anywhere you want.

      This is not to say that doing this is particularly easy. It’s not that easy to sell online. People are not in a hurry to issue a credit card to every E-commerce they encounter, despite the great online sales statistics (10% of the Americans bought online in 2018).

      The good news is that you will be able to take advantage of the Internet for your benefit by selling big and generating high cycles. In order to succeed, you must first realize that you need professional guidance from experienced people, whether you are only at the beginning of the road or have an existing store that brings in sales. You can be the proud owner of a profitable web stor

      Trade war - China and USA

      The trade war between the US and China creates new ways of avoiding customs duties.

      After passing goods through a third country, Chinese exporters are starting to switch and falsify codes that identify imported goods as a means of evading the tariffs imposed by the USA's president.

      One day in June, seven months after the United States imposed a high import duty on timber from China, a wood importer from Oregon received a call from a timber supplier who asked him if he wanted to get Chinese plywood without paying customs instead.

      “How will this be done?” Asked the importer David Weiss. The products carry an identification code that has been tested by US customs agents. "Do not worry," the supplier replied. The solid tree will not contain its usual markup and will be moved under another markup.

      Each product imported into the US carries a ten-digit code called the HTS code, and there are only 18,927 such codes. This provides a uniform language that bridg
