Made in China

by Eriko T.
(Tokyo)

Today I’m going to talk about Chinese stuff. Have you ever thought about where stuff around you comes from? How about your clothes? My jacket is from China.

Maybe I guess you can also find at least one product made in China. It’s very difficult to find anything that is NOT made in China.

When I was in Oregon this spring, I was staying with a girl from China. She asked me, “What do you think of stuff made in China?”.

I couldn’t find my answer. Because we can’t live without stuff made in China and we depend a lot on them.

She said, “In China many workers are working hard on low salaries. You have to remember that there are a lot of low wage workers for making stuff made in China.”

It made me think about a lot of things.

China’s economy and its growth have a great influence on Japan. It’s an obvious fact.

Therefore, we should stand on this reality and think what we should do.

From "Made in Japan" to "Made in China"
by: Gary Wolff

Nice story, Eriko.

When I was a child, it was the same thing in the states. But everything then was "Made in Japan."

VERY cheap goods and, for the most part, fairly poor quality goods were imported to America from Japan.

But starting in the 60's & 70's, the quality gradually improved, especially in cars and electrical goods, and rest is history. Japanese goods now have a grrrrreat reputation all over the world.

So we've gone from "Made in Japan" to "Made in China." Which country is next? :-)

Enjoy your summer holidays, Eriko !
