China’s high savings rate will ensure continued increase in investment, its status as a developing country will ensure its ability to take advantage of available technology developed by advanced economies and improvements in the quality of human capital will ensure sustained rises in productivity. Despite the current lacklustre effort by the government to minimise environmental damage, there has been relative improvements.
The cost of living is much lower in developing countries than it is in the US, so that companies can pay foreign labourers wages that are lower, but still enough for those persons to have the standard of living in their country that an American also has. In fact, a Chinese engineer can be hired for US$15 000 a year, one fifth of the cost of hiring an engineer from the Silicon Valley (Hira & Hira, 2005). Companies reduce their overall costs by 45%, and save up to 70% on their initial costs by outsourcing. Therefore, they can hire a larger workforce at a cheaper cost in foreign countries, which increases productivity and in turn, increases their chances of beating ... ... middle of paper ... ...oneer status once held in the field of technology, provide workers with the ammunition they need to remain part of the workforce and punish companies for abusing policies.

manufacturing a competitive advantage. According to 2013 analysis done by consultant AlixPartners estimated that cost of manufacturing in China will equal cost of manufacturing in U.S. due to labor cost in China has been increasing in past 10 years. The low cost energy and labor equivalence recently is contributed to 500,000 jobs created in manufacturing sector since 2010 (Ludwig & Spiegel, 2014). Another key driver for resurgence of U.S. manufacturing is supply chain innovation and according to a survey by Supply Chain Digest of 340 supply chain manager in 2012 showed an important decision driver for off-shore manufacturing is speed to market. In order to reduce the time of product to market corporates leaders are locating manufacturing facilities in U.S. which enhances the ability to understand customer requirements and react quickly throughout the entire value chain when requirements change hence favor production that is slated for U.S. consumption (Ludwig & Spiegel,
In 2014, the United States of America imported more than 466 billion U.S. dollars of Chinese manufactured goods. In 2000, China was only responsible for 100 billion U.S. dollars’ worth of imported goods to the U.S. China’s economic growth has been tremendous within the past 14 years (U.S. Department of Commerce). More and more manufacturers have been moving their overseas businesses to China in hopes to reduce the cost of manufacturing. Well-known companies such as Nike, ExxonMobil, DuPont, Whirlpool and Apple, have some portion of their company outsourced to China. Between the years 2001 and 2013 there has been a steady trend of manufacturing jobs leaving America, which totaled to about 3.2 million positions (Katherine Peralta).
Experience effect is defined systematic reductions in production costs that have been observed to occur over the life of a produce. This is related to this article because when Samsung faces the challenge of trade in China, the company built the new factory in Vietnam last year for reducing cost to growth profit. In this article, although Samsung owns first-mover advantage in early 1992, since technology transferring, many and many Chinese brands have developed, that gave the pressure to cheaper price on mobile-phone. Samsung found the way out that is create the new, lower cost of producing in Vietnam. Besides, the brand provides the cheaper mobile-phone to keep the large market -

As a result, overpopulation may not be that serious in some other countries, it does be the most serous social problem in China. In order to solve the overpopulation issue, the government should pay great attention to it. Some policies, such as “ One China policy”, have already been made in China.
A consulting firm, Rhodium Group calculates that global steel production rose by 57% in the decade to 2014, with Chinese mills making up 91% of this increase.  While Explaining the Feedback loop, the author brings China back into discussion has based its dynamism on a precarious feedback loop. High spending on investment drives up the growth rate but investment is only sustainable if the resulting productive capacity finds willing consumers. In the past, China could invest on the theory that excess output could be exported, but that game has neared its limits. In the future, most of the consuming must be done by Chinese households.
China First of all, China is the largest producer of plastic materials. In 2015, China produced 27.8% plastic in the world. Low production costs make its products more competitive. However, it still imports plastic products from France every year to support its vast demand for development. Demand is less than supply.
China’s trade with the world grew substantially in the first three decades of the 20th century, marking a historic time for the country. In the 1840s, the Chinese economy was strongly closed; however, when Great Britain and other powerful countries pressured their economy, China was willing to open international trade within their own economy. Over the next 60 years, China experienced a small opening of trade amongst other foreign powers, allowing transactions amongst foreigners allowed. The funded railroad aroused industrialization, as well as publicity and overseas shipping (Yan, 2014). The main reason for moderation in China is because they are so much more focused on production rather than consumption.
Within ten years, they began to encounter pressure from domestic companies that marketed less expensive, all be it lower quality, replacements. While much of the increased competitions MNEs confront in China are foreign, domestic and joint ventures firms, they also combat illicit competition from knockoff, or pirated products. P&G a Foreign Entrant Perspective P&G entered China in 1988 (Nelson, 3, 2012); at its peak, it had 50% of the Chinese market share with some of their most trusted brands (Crocker & Ti-Chung, 2004). While P&G is still the country’s largest consumer products goods company, domestic companies such as Masson Ltd Masson Ltd and LaFang. Masson Ltd started in 1896, it was a state owned local toothpaste manufacturer until 1993 when it was privatized, it learned quickly from it foreign competitors diversifying into “several business branches including oral cavity care products, food additive, cosmetic and skin care products, and hi-tech separation technology equipment, as well as real estate and international trade” (Masson, 2013, para.
