Import of goods from China. Year's results.

15.06.2017

The turnover between Russia and China has increased by 20% over the year (considering both import and export)

Whereas import of thousands of Chinese products have been prohibited over the last year and a half.

The major part of banned products are toys for kids. Only half of the toys imported from China meet Russian quality standards. One quarter of toys contain excessive amount of phenol, which may cause poisoning of a child.

About a quarter of banned products are clothes. Though a huge amount of clothes from China is imported to Russia without any problem, the banned portion contains harmful dyes, rot and even insects.

Only 5% of the goods not in compliance with Russian quality standards, refer to foodstuffs. Basically, Chinese vegetables have excessive nitrate content, while frozen fish contains more ice than the product itself.
