The nips just are too smart and have realized that the chinks consumers are just too weak for a automobile market. Those cheap labor chinks economy could only go so far in their pigtgy banks and not able to afford cars in thye first hand.

The only real costs to this are moving the tools to another country.

Tooling out a new factory is their major cost of production however they already have a factory worth of tools.

I'm sure other developing nations will be screaming out for increased investment.

Manila welcome you!

You need to make up your mind.

Do you think our folks in Manila can't produce the stuff? Only the Chinamen can do it?

Just want to remind Japan that it is always good to support another democratic countries. Japan is a peaceful and advanced country we like.

Japan is a democratic country and we should work together against the Chinamen.

First, China is the world's largest new auto market. Second, those Jap factories in China are producing for the China domestic market. If they pull out to go to Philippines, they'll end up paying heavy import duties to enter China market.

It's just lose / lose for Japs.

The decision to set up production plant in China is in the first place a huge mistake.

But it is not too late to correct it. Come to Manila ASAP. Our people will be happy to buy Japanese cars.

Our country is a democratic country just like many ASEAN countries. We are all open to foregin investment for decades. We have friendly, gentle, hardworking and educated workers for you.

But Japan might have initially looked down upon us since we are smaller than China. Please remember that China is huge but its people are mostly living in abject poverty. China is also very backward in technology applications. We are much better and more advanced.

Doing Business in China – Foreigners Not Welcome

business in china
Zhang Jianping, the director for China’s “National Development and Reform Commission’s International Business Cooperation Department” has recently stated that:

“Chinese automakers are capable of making high-quality cars by themselves. They are able to produce more than 18 million cars a year, which has made this country the biggest market in the world. Under these circumstances, foreign investment will not be that necessary.(1)”

This means that “China will limit multinational automakers involvement in car manufacturing with an amendment that places stricter rules on foreign investors in the industry.(2)”

The result is that by the time this new rule was to take effect on January 31 :

a) all new auto businesses had to produce their engines locally
b) all foreign companies had to partner with a Chinese company and own less than 50% of the business entity in order to enter the Chinese market.

All told, this is another sign of China pushing for ‘indigenous innovation’ by ransoming foreign companies for their high tech.

Why would China do this? Reasons range from the fact that the Chinese need to do this to create jobs and avoid an ‘Arab spring’ at the hands of the unemployed, to the fact that this event signals a further “rolling back” of the open door policy Deng Xiao Ping is said to have backed over 30 years ago.

As for me, I see it differently.

The Price of Doing Business in China

In my experience, this phenomenon can be viewed as the 'price of doing business in China', which is ingrained in this country as 'quality fade'- a term coined by Paul Midler.

This event, at least to me, highlights one of the biggest problems with doing business here. In China, you are welcome to do business, but only for a while. Once you've been analyzed and your technology is 'borrowed'- you are free to leave.
