China opposes trade protectionism under pretext of product quality
2007-10-17 15:58

China opposes some countries using product quality as a pretense to practice trade protectionism, Li Changjiang, director of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, said in Beijing Wednesday.

"(Trade protectionism) not only affects China but also benefits no other countries," said Li, a delegate to the ongoing 17th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.

Li did not identify these countries, but called on relevant overseas manufacturers to organize toy imports from China as early as possible, so that their children could access China-made toys attractive both in price and quality before Christmas.

China, the world's largest toy manufacturer controlling nearly 60 percent of global toy trade, has come under spotlight amid a spate of export toy recalls, the recent one by the US toy maker Mattel which this summer staged three separate recalls of China-made toys.
