Senior Chinese official has protested against foreign media allegations discrediting the quality of Chinese products
A senior Chinese official has protested against foreign media allegations discrediting the quality of Chinese products. The Chinese Xinhua news agency quoted Gao Hucheng, the country's vice minister of commerce, as saying Thursday: "Like other governments around the world, the Chinese government pays great attention to safety, and when problems occur, we never shirk, but deal with them responsibly after finding the facts." However, the official admitted that although the safety of Chinese goods remained a problem, the quality of Chinese products was constantly improving. The minister urged measures to strengthen cooperation, since products made by companies involving foreign capital accounted for 58% of Chinese exports. "The 'Made in China' inscription actually means 'globally made'," Hucheng said. Since March 2007, foreign, mostly U.S. media have been regularly complaining about low-quality Chinese goods, with some reports alleging poisoning and deaths among users of Chinese food and toothpaste. Among the two recent Chinese "scares" cited by the BBC was China's probe into reports that contaminated toothpaste was sent to the Americas in May 2007 and a recall of at least 100 pet food brands after melamine was found in wheat gluten exports from China for use in pet food in March 2007. According to Xinhua, the health ministry of Japan, China's largest food importer, said in July that 99.42 percent of food imports from China in 2006 met safety standards.
