China's growth is mainly due to the greed of the West (& the East) in wanting cheap goods. There were many other factors (relevant to UK, but also elsewhere) which owed the decline of the manufacturing industry in those countries due to lack of investment, whether in machinery, R+D or a skilled workforce. This year China has to contend with the 'mismanagement' of COVID-19, Xinjiang & Hong Kong, which have only surfaced this year. Businesses can look elsewhere for production, including nearby countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar . . . . . . What they will not now (and probably won't care) is that the majority of these factories that have opened within the past 5 years, are either China owned, China managed or have a vast reliance of China money and certainly a reliance on China components. There is always going to be an argument of morals v price v a product being commercial. Will people change completely and only buy from sustainable sources and ethically correct factories? A few might. These same people will 'happily' turn a blind eye to other world issues. As I mentioned on another post, it will be an interesting 2-3 years ahead.
