The majority of Chinese people believe that home produced products have made great progress over the past decade, according to a survey conducted by China Youth Daily.
In the survey of 2,000 netizens, 65.1 percent of respondents say mobile phones were the domestic products they trust the most; 55.4 percent of them choose space and aviation facilities; and 54.1 percent place their trust in domestic high-speed rail products most.
A total of 41.4 percent of netizens praised domestic products, with 49.2 percent saying they were acceptable and only 1.3 percent of respondents rejecting made-in-China products.
Ten years ago, the most reputable domestic products were small items such as clothing and shoes. But today, high-tech products have won a good reputation for good quality and low prices.
Wu Zhen, a Doctor at Tsinghua University, said the biggest change for domestic products is that they are not only cheap, but also display advanced technologies. He noted that the smartphone he now uses is a Chinese brand, adding that the smartphone is easy to use and is of good quality.
Sun Yu working at a hospital in Henan province is planning to buy a Haier washing machine. He said many Chinese brands such as Haier, Huawei and Lenovo have won favor among foreign customers for their good quality and low prices.
To do better in the future, nearly 70 percent of respondents suggest Chinese brands focus on intellectual property rights and the development of core technology.
A total of 54.4 percent say innovation is the top priority of domestic products.
