With a series of high-end Chinese manufacturing products being exported to other countries, Made in China is no longer synonymous with cheap clothes. As reform gathers pace, Chinese brands bring dynamism to the economy. 

Chinese equipment has made a series of recent breakthroughs in overseas markets. Deutsche Bahn AG, the German railway company, is considering buying trains and accessories from China. A promotion event for the ACP1000, China's self-developed advanced pressurized water nuclear reactor, attracted representatives from Britain, France, the U.S. and Canada. Dalian Locomotive and Rolling Stock recently received an order for 112 metro train carriages from India.

Through the transformation and upgrading of the equipment manufacturing industry, we witness growth in scale and increasing competitiveness on the part of China's manufacturing industry. However, China’s role in international industrial specialization still needs to be further promoted. It is expected that with the implementation of related policies, China’s high end manufacturing industry will become an important engine not only for China but also for the international economy.

Behind the good news on Made in China are China’s extensive and ongoing efforts in innovation. Taking new energy vehicles for example, from Jan. to April 2015, China produced 34,400 new energy vehicles, three times more than in the same period of last year. Within these figures, the production of pure electric passenger cars and plug-in hybrid vehicles tripled, while the production of pure electric commercial cars multiplied fivefold.

The upgrading of China’s manufacturing industry is also attracting the attention of international capital. According to statistics from the Commerce Ministry, the percentage of overseas capital used in China’s electronic equipment manufacturing, transport equipment manufacturing, and raw chemicals production, has increased by 4.8 percent, 4.4 percent and 2.0 percent respectively.

Zhou Qingjie, doctor at the Economics School of Beijing Technology and Business University, says that Made in China no longer generates ideas of cheap shirts, shoes and socks. In recent years, China’s manufacturing industry has made enormous progress, and a series of high-tech and high-added-value Chinese brands have emerged. This is not only because of the adjustment of China’s industrial policy but also thanks to the reform of state-owned enterprises and the national support to the high-end equipment manufacturing industry.
