A group known as Goods Made in China Importers Association (GMIA) has advised Nigerians to stop blaming China for substandard products in circulation, whereas some minor greedy and unpatriotic Nigerian importers should be blamed, alongside those manning our borders.
According to a statement signed by Charles Udogaranya, Secretary of the association, this counsel has become necessary as the ever-increasing blame trade is growing into a proportional height that may affect the cordial economic relations between the Asian Tiger and the African giant.
“To put the record straight, we can confidently inform that from Beijing to Shanghai, to Guangzhou, to Shenzhen, Xiamen and across small and big cities in China, substandard products rarely exist.
China produces for various nations in the world that includes nations like USA, Australia, Britain and European nations with standardized quality.
The exception here is the illicit conduct of a minor Nigeria importers that put pressure on their Chinese manufactures for an unacceptable, poor quality, in order to make the goods extremely cheap at the local market in Nigeria to lure more patronage due to economic condition in the country.
“We advise Nigerian buyers to only buy quality products as they will outlast the cheap and poor substandard products and in the long run saves money. We believe that if Nigerians can patronize only high quality products, importation of poor and substandard products will die naturally from our local markets”.
