The article focuses on the global perception of goods produced in China as well as developments concerning China's chemical industry. It reports that China's exports are not only perceived by the rest of the world as low-tech and poor in added value, but they also have notoriety for being produced in environmentally unfriendly conditions. China's decision to focus on technology is expected to result in a change in the export structure of China's chemical industry.
