The Great Advantage of Imports from China
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 and China has become the world's largest manufacturing giant. Almost all of the major companies are now manufacturing in China. China has become the second most powerful economy in the world only after the US. The great advantage of importing in China is the low price, availability, and quality of the products.

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

With technology revolutionizing how we do, pretty much everything; you probably have some preconceived notion that the industry of farming is stuck in its rural ways. That while the rest of the population grows, farmers are on their hands and knees pulling weeds somewhere.

In America, you probably don’t give Chinese New Year much thought. It’s something that you may see in Chinese takeout restaurants or maybe you don’t know much at all. While January 1st is celebrated as the universal New Year, Chinese New Year’s date fluctuates. This year, Chinese New Year was on February 5th. This celebration is not just about the celebration in the sense that everyone goes out, drinks, and then spends the next day recuperating. For this special celebration, those living in mainland China take it very seriously. Travel is extensive, businesses often close, and people can go home for several weeks.
