Chinese labour quality draws US companies
Aug '11
The scope and size of the Chinese domestic market, along with the quality and workmanship, makes US companies to stick to China. This was revealed in a survey made by the Chinese American Chamber of Commerce.

According to the White Paper of "US companies in China", of the 350 surveyed enterprises, 61 percent of the companies either produced or procured or supplied goods to China.

When compared with other variables in the manufacturing sector, the quality rating of Chinese workers is better, the survey reveals.

Even though, government efficiency, legal compliance, infrastructure, intellectual property protection and logistics received a lower score, quality of Chinese workmanship received a very high rating.

The other obvious opportunity is the advantage, in cost of labour in production vis-à-vis that of the US. In 2008, the Chinese production labour cost was just eight percent of those prevailing in the US.

It is expected that Chinese labour cost will take a long time to reach US levels, even if China achieves 15 percent growth rate per annum.
