Are products made in countries like the Philippines or Vietnam, have more quality than Chinese products?
Mixed up your wording, buddy. :)
I don't believe they are inherently better at all. It depends on the company which they are making the goods for. If they want high quality products, they can have them made anywhere.
Assuming they're being made for a company of that respective country. Would that change your answer?
I noticed it too, it's bugging me :(
No, not at all. A country of origin doesn't state the quality of its goods. China gets a bad rep because they produce such a massively large amount of goods.
I don't understand your point luc, and what's bugging you Ed?
The wording error.
Just because it's made in China doesn't mean it can't be the best quality product in the world. It doesn't matter what country it's from. What matters is the quality which the manufacturer is trying to achieve and whether they achieve that level.
Well think of the majority of the products that them make, pencils, toys, cheap stuff, with lead. Compare with another country, it may be hard but I don't see it as an error.
Cut him some slack! Haha I didn't even notice there was a wording error until you two pointed it out.
Anyway, MrL wouldn't you say that in general there's a certain standard that each country meets? Certainly there are outliers, but still...
There are certain countries, none of them being of the list you mentioned. I believe nations such as Japan, Germany, Italy, France, Belgium, United States and some others are nations which hold their general production to a higher standard.
Why only those countries? If there can be standards for those, why not others?
Yes, and they are known for their high quality since they are a more well off country. Now the Philippines and Vietnam are on the fence. Generally, something made in china is frowned upon.
Other than those, I believe that most of the production that takes place as a result of outsourcing and operating overseas is dependent on the parent company, or those purchasing the goods.
Their governments have very few regulations which hold them to meet any standard. I group most Asian nations as being producers of the world's lower quality products. There are obvious exceptions for individual products and companies, but in general.

Now you're just pissing me off. ;)
That's censored? Sheesh... What is this? Third grade? -_-
I was surprised as well.
Oh so basically, MrL, you're saying that countries can be evaluated based on their good quality goods, but not on poor quality goods?
Not at all. I'm basing it one the standards by which they hold their manufacturers. I believe that any country has both positives and negatives. I should have said that they have a reputation of better products. You can't generalize, really.
Alright I think we're on the same page. In reality you shouldn't generalize, but there's going to be some truth behind their reputations.
Generalizing anything is usually a bad idea, hehe. (:
Yeah but you have to. A lot. And a lot of times generalizations are usually correct. That's why I love stereotypes! Ok, I don't actually love stereotypes...
I love stereotypes too.
Add this to the list pipes. Bffls.
It depends. I don't think you can generalize quality for all products from a certain country.
Eh, true. Just try.
Well I'm saying it's different for textiles vs electronics vs food. Some countries are better than others for certain products.
Generalize god damn it! Haha.
Don't command me pipes! You think you own me or somethin? Huh? HUH?
Well I think because of the vast spectrum of products that china exports, their quality has a pretty good chance of being higher than other countries. They've been stepping it up.
Thank you. ;)
