Not exactly true. The computer and keyboard you are using to type your comments are most likely Chinese made. It may be designed and developed in the US or somewhere but definately assembled in China.
iphone, blackberry and what not top notch gadgetry we're using are all Chinese made. The Chinese certainly can have top quality stuffs if they want it. Look at the opening/closing ceremony of Olympics 2008.
I'm guilty as charged for making the overgeneralizing statement.
My point is that it's up to the importing countries to regulate and enforce safety standards of Chinese products. Another obvious example is toys. I just bought a couple of Chinese toys at 20 baht a pop at the stall in front of the big, busy shopping mall off Lad Praw Road. They didn't last more than a week. These toys will never pass through a U.S. port. Of course, they cost a lot more in Western countries and are of better quality for Western consumers.
Sometimes you get what you pay for.
