Special taskforce to crack down on fake Chinese goods

The Ministry of Economic Affairs has been recently directed by the President, Ma Ying-jeou to form a special taskforce to crackdown fake Chinese goods.

The directions were issued by the President during a meeting with delegates of the conventional industries from all across the country. The meeting was conducted in response to complaints received from the traditional industries with regards that the markets in Taiwan were getting infested with fake Chinese products bearing the tag, 'Made in Taiwan'.

The President stated that, the frequency of smuggled and forged goods from China has capsized the domestic market while disregarding the claims and gains of local businesses. He also avers that, strict instructions will be given to the taskforce under consideration to analyse their clean-up results every week.

Huang Kuang-yi, Head of a Bedding Manufacturer's Coalition from Taiwan during the meet presented various Chinese products carrying the 'Made in Taiwan' tag and said that, as more and more inferior quality goods are flooding the market, lot of customers are confused about the areas or places, wherein they could procure authentic Taiwanese products.

The taskforce that is to be formed by the government to crackdown fake Chinese products will only happen, once Taiwan signs the proposed Economic Co-operation Framework Agreement (ECFA) with China. Huang stated that, till then the government should withdraw all the forged Chinese products from the Taiwanese markets within a span of three months, as the traditional industries will only support ECFA once the fake Chinese products are removed from Taiwanese markets.

In the meantime, Chien Ying-hsueh, President, Taiwan Textile Printing Dyeing & Finishing Industry Association, said that, there are chances of Chinese dyeing material containing poisonous ingredients that cannot be easily traced even by the quality control authorities in Taiwan.

Chien hopes that the government and schools in Taiwan will only make use of uniforms that are manufactured in Taiwan and that the government will exercise a strict check on the dyeing processes.
