Xinhua:


"China's auto sales will exceed eight million in 2007, continuing its rapid growth this year, Jiang Lei, an official with China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) said on Friday. The CAAM, an important source of industry information, earlier predicted that both China's auto production and sales would exceed seven million this year.

By the end of the year, China will overtake Germany to become the world's third largest auto manufacturer after the United States and Japan, according to the association. Jiang attributed the constant expansion of auto-making industry to the booming economy, improvement of the industry's production capacity and fast development of home-brand manufacturers.

Meanwhile, auto manufacturers will work to improve product quality and services to expand the market, instead of counting on lowering prices in the next year, Jiang said. During the first 11 months this year, China's auto production reached 6.59 million, a year-on-year increase of 27.92 percent, while sales scored a growth of 25.49 percent to 6.45 million, statistics from the CAAM showed."

quantity maybee, but not quality

most nations over many many years, started with quality then worked on quantity..

the whole reason china entered and became a quick leader in the world economy was because it could do more quantitiy before it even had to think about quality....and slowly the quality will get better

change ur mindset...the world is changing and so are business models

reputation and image is just as important when u are trying to get to the next level. where established companies dominate their fields they wont allow and irreputable issues such as quality tarnish their image, regardless of quantity:eek:

web design companes are not hardware like cars, so they can change, improve with different name more easily. i do get your point though. Japan was quite lucky as they had THE CHALLENGE in the 1950,60's, now days it would be a lot difficult to face the same exact challenge.

you have to look at the market that these products are addressing. if so many have been sold in the chinese market, it simply means that the chinese buyers accept this level of quality at this time. lets not forget that as late as 1999, the total sales of cars in china was less than 500,000/yr. for the auto industry to go from this number to the present, is nothing less than phenomenal. the rising expectations of the chinese consumer, together w/ market forces will create pressure on the industry to raise the level of quality of their products. as chinese income levels rise & more quality products from abroad are available, the cheap, shoddy copies will be left by the wayside. this process took almost a hundred years in europe; the chinese are trying to do it in twenty.

i know that god_bless_japan is going to say that the chinese buyers are stupid to accept such shoddy products, so i will preempt him by paraphrasing deng shaoping. he said that its not important whether the cat is black or white, so long as it catches mice.
