Sale of Chinese goods may decline by 40-45% this Diwali: Survey
MANGALURU: Be it decorative items like lights, gift items, lamps and wall hangings or other products, the sale of Chinese goods may decline by 40-45 per cent this Diwali as compared to last year, according to a survey by Assocham-Social Development Foundation (ASDF).
The Associated Chamber of Commerce and Industry of India survey said, there seems to be a decline of about 40-45 per cent in consumption of Chinese products on this Diwali in comparison to last year. Chinese products had recorded a 30 per cent decline in sales last year on Diwali.
印度工商业联合会调查称，与去年相比，中国在这一地区的产品销量似乎下降了40% - 45%。去年，中国产品在排灯节上的销售额下降了30%。
According to shopkeepers, most of the customers are demanding Indian lights. People are not interested in purchasing Chinese products while showing interest in local products, including earthen diyas.
There was a huge demand for 'made in China' fancy lights in the market but it is also decreasing. Also, the quality of Chinese products is also questionable with no shopkeeper giving any sort of guarantee on Chinese items once sold.

Drop in the sales of Chinese goods will give boost to '' Made in India '' products ! This is good for India.

May be Doklam incident is responsible but overall there is too much crowd in all Mall and Street Market for Purchasing Diwali Items.

China is not worried because Indian traders are crooks. They will still buy from China and label it as MADE IN INDIA and fool gullible Indians. Ha ha ha ha

It will be a real Diwali when it declines by 100%. I feel that the day is not far; most Indians are patriotic people.

Or its related to slow demand, demonetization and higher unemployment rates ?

It is our responsibility to help create jobs for fellow Indians instead of Chinese. . Always check the packaging to verify if it is Made in India or Chinese. Reject anything that is Chinese.

chinese products are cheap, fragile and not durable. Not worth buying for long use. When you consider the duration of their usefulness, they are actually a lot more expensive than others.
