In fact, they were also among the few countries that managed to quickly recover their industrial production output after the first wave of the Covid-19 Outbreak.
Why Manufacture in China?
There are several reasons why China have attracted so many overseas businesses for manufacturing. Among most reasons why China shows great manufacturing potential are :
Resources and labor is competitively cheaper than most manufacturing countries. Labor is also easily available especially because of the country’s high population.

Capable of manufacturing at high volumes for mass manufacturing. High labor resources allows more manufacturing activities.

This becomes the alternative for brands to use these products as their choice of promotional medium.
