I was wondering about those tags on clothes or products that say “Made in China” (or somewhere else). Why are they needed? Is it a requirement? When does it matter where they were made - is it for customs? Why wouldn’t a shipping container labeled “Contents Made in China” be sufficient for customs? Or is it for consumers? (If so, how thoughtful, I didn’t know anyone cared.)
For that matter, how do we know those tags are telling the truth?
