Push to improve quality of consumer goods
China is planning to improve the quality of consumer goods and promote the “Made in China” brand to meet growing demand.
The government will introduce compulsory standards on quality, intensify supervision and spur businesses to improve products, according to a statement released on Aug 25 after a State Council conference chaired by Premier Li Keqiang.
Sectors including food, home appliances, electronics, clothing, cosmetics, daily chemical products and sports goods were highlighted at the meeting.
Domestic standards will be raised to catch up with global levels, and a series of standards on core manufacturing technology will be established, said the statement, noting industry leaders will be supported to exceed compulsory levels.
