Products made in China attracting global consumers


Beijing—A Huawei smart phone that saved its owner by taking a bullet for him in an armed robbery in South Africa has put the spotlight on phones made-in-China. But smart phones are among several kinds of high quality Chinese products and goods that continue to make their presence felt across the globe.
The following are ten kinds of leading Chinese products, ranging from infrastructure and the high-tech industry to home appliances.
Bridges. Since the 1088-meter-long Sutong Bridge in Jiangsu Province won a 2014 International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) Award, Chinese bridges have continued to win FIDIC awards due to their outstanding quality.
The Beipanjiang Bridge in Guizhou province, southwest China, has just completed construction. Hanging 570 meters above a river, it renewed its record as the world’s “highest bridge”.
Satellites. China has recently made strides with the launch of the world’s first quantum satellite “Micius,” part of China’s Quantum Experiments at the Space Scale (QUESS) program which includes 20 such satellites.
Besides the QUESS program, the well-known Chang’e program, the Chinese Lunar Exploration Program (CLEP), remains ongoing. The first two Chang’e lunar orbiters were launched in 2007 and 2010, the Chang’e 3 landed the Moon in 2013, and the fourth and fifth launches are under preparation.
High-speed Railways. A new railway linking Zhengzhou in central China’s Henan Province with Xuzhou in eastern Jiangsu Province opened Saturday.
China’s high-speed railways now exceeds 20,000 km in length. Based on its home-market success, Chinese bullet trains have won contracts in Indonesia, Russia, Iran and India.—Xinhua
