But how easy or difficult would it be to do so in reality? Here’s a lowdown of how we are virtually, a country ‘Made in China’.
Your latest smartphone? The same device you’re typing anti-China messages on? Made in China.
China is present in virtually every part of the country, and their products are often preferred for lower costs. Also, with modern trade agreements, it is very difficult to put a blanket ban on imports from them.
