Now isn't that amusing these charlatans from a country that often accuse other nations of fraud :)

It's called projecting!

in Australia when tests revealed what was meant to be Australian honey actually has a heavy dose of foreign syrups and sugars, mostly from China, in them. That sort of thing needs to be dealt with using testing, fines, jail etc etc.

The Labor Union is one of the problems for manufacturing business in Myanmar. Some foreign own garment factories have closed in Myanmar due to labor Union activism and strike. Burmese Government must control the labor Unionists and other activism if the Government wants foreign investment in Burma. The international activists are invading Burma and scare poor and uneducated people from countryside and encouraging peoples to against building roads and power stations in near their villages.

This is what its all about. Moving supply chains out of China.

Many of these factories will still get their supplies from China. This move is just to "change" the country of origin.

No an ideal outcome, but still positive for S.E.A. This is what its all about. Moving supply chains out of China.

I think the ability to track supply chain inputs is only going to increase in time. I can imagine a time, not far away, where there are some very sophisticated scanning techniques on goods entering U.S ports, far more so than now.

The world as whole needs to get much better at this. Just the other day there was a big controversy in Australia when tests revealed what was meant to be Australian honey actually has a heavy dose of foreign syrups and sugars, mostly from China, in them. That sort of thing needs to be dealt with using testing, fines, jail etc etc.

Or they will simply change the labels before reaching American shores. It wouldn't be a surprise considering some of the other illegal activities Chinese businesses have been caught doing in the past.

Japanese food producers do it all the time with Fukushima and othe prefecture products.
