WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) is hailing the Chinese government after it took action against automotive parts counterfeiters.
The move essentially serves notice that the government is serious regarding elimination of counterfeit components, according to the association.
The Chinese Fair Trading Department recently raided counterfeit distributors operating in the Shiyan province. Dana Corp., a MEMA member, aided the department in its efforts.
“Eliminating counterfeit products protects our members’ valuable brand names and trademarks,” says Christopher Bates, president and chief executive officer of MEMA.
“The Chinese government’s actions also protects the country’s consumers who believe they are receiving the high quality parts that these established trademarks represent.”
China is moving steadily toward implementation of new standards of trade as a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO), Bates notes.
“The actions against counterfeiting of trademarked automotive products sends a clear signal to foreign investors that China stands behind its WTO commitments,” he adds.
