China is the world’s recognized as the “world factory“. Printed with “made in China” goods such as flood the domestic market, and set off at a low price of belongs to China. People at the same time of enjoying Chinese goods with high quality and low price, protective barriers such as tariff quota also in resist the impact of the Chinese goods for local products. American talk Show “Late Show with David Letterman” (newest Show with David Letterman) host David Letterman complained that in the Show has been made in China “into” all areas in the United States, even the “itch scratching” (the back scratcher) this little articles for use also became a patent in China. On the show, letterman asked: “why can’t we make its own products, even small objects like ‘itch scratching also want to rely on someone else?” He quipped, americans not only to do business with Chinese people, but also by the Chinese “scratch it.
Made in China, however, is only the simple labor-intensive areas difficult to crawl. Made in China, is built on hundreds of thousands of workers engaged in simple manual labor; Is based on there is no secondary creation directly from the hands of foreign orders; Is based on a large number of similar domestic manufacturers and even cruel competition. A foreign trade practitioners to reporters about barbie’s processing: “a barbie doll price is 10 ~ 20 dollars, the Chinese workers can only get 3 cents, because our labor value is too low. Just think how much we want to produce a barbie doll to buy a apple mobile phones with cutting-edge technology.”
In the production of export a lot of products in China, the textile industry undoubtedly carries the leader of the huge army of made in China. Costo supermarkets in the United States, Japan’s Uniqlo, Spain’s ZARA, into the clothing sales shops or places around the world, almost each piece of clothing is stamped with “made in China” tag. China’s manufacturing industry, especially for China’s textile industry is splendid, but the brilliant to create the future of manufacturing in China was not a sustainable and effective. How in the shortest possible time, reasonable effectively convert made in China to created in China, adding more value-added products in the production and manufacturing, is the key to realize a qualitative leap of China’s manufacturing industry. Now the development of Chinese clothing manufacturers industry? Facing other industrial rise of emerging countries and more cheap price, is gradually lose the price advantage of Chinese clothing manufacturers industry go from here?

Chinese clothing manufacturers represented by China’s manufacturing industry had a significant achievement, and break through the bottleneck to realize the leap of problems. This problem is not unique to China, many Asian countries have been faced with the dilemma. The key is to look for the opportunity, seize the opportunity. That on the one hand, the developing mode of Japan and Singapore worth China learning and using for reference. In the 60 s of the last century, in many Asian developing countries that want to use their expertise to vigorously develop labor-intensive industries, Japan has realized that labor-intensive industries is easy to be replaced, vulnerable to fluctuations, is not a long-term solution. The rise of the Japanese government feather beds technology intensive industries, vigorously promote domestic enterprises to innovate. Now, Japan has been in the electronics, small appliances, precision instruments, medicine, and other leading countries in the field of. Singapore is not early start, but Singapore caught each time the critical period of industry transformation, from labor-intensive to technology-intensive, finally realizes the service to give priority to the magnificent transformation.
