'Made in China' Made Many Clothes Made in North Korea PDF Print E-mail

Merchants and businessmen in Dandong, a Chinese city bordering North Korea, say the country's textile industry is increasingly using North Korean plants to reduce production costs to cheaper labor. They say North Korean-made clothes are labeled "Made in China" and are exported worldwide.

 

Chinese suppliers send fabric and other raw materials needed to make clothes to North Korea. From there, the items were sewn and exported.

 

This shows that there is always a gap amid renewed sanctions of the United Nations, following the missile and nuclear tests of the Kim Jong-un government. The sanctions do not include a ban on textile exports.

 

"We received orders from all over the world," said one Korean-Chinese businessman in Dandong, a border town that houses the majority of trade with North Korea. Like so many people interviewed for this report, he was reluctant to name his name on the grounds of a sensitive issue.

 

Dozens of apparel agents operate in Dandong, acting as an intermediary for Chinese clothing suppliers and buyers from the United States, Europe, Japan, South Korea, Canada and Russia, the businessman said.

 

 

"We will ask the Chinese suppliers who work with us whether they plan to open-up with their clients - sometimes the last buyers are unaware of the clothes they get made in North Korea, which is very sensitive," he said.

 

With a value of US $ 752 million, textiles represent the second largest export value of North Korea after coal and other minerals, 2016 ago. The total value of North Korea's overall exports at that time increased 4.6 percent to US $ 2.82 billion.

 

The latest UN sanctions, earlier this month, completely banned coal exports.

 

 

Baju 'Made in China' Kini Banyak Dibuat di Korea Utara

 

Para pedagang dan pengusaha di Dandong, kota China yang berbatasan dengan Korea Utara, menyebut perusahaan tekstil Negeri Tirai Bambu semakin banyak menggunakan pabrik Korut untuk menekan biaya produksi dengan buruh yang lebih murah.

 

Mereka mengatakan baju-baju buatan Korea Utara diberi label "Made in China" dan diekspor ke seluruh dunia.

 

Pemasok asal China mengirim kain dan bahan-bahan mentah lain yang dibutuhkan untuk membuat pakaian ke Korea Utara. Dari sana, barang-barang itu dijahit dan diekspor.

 

Hal ini menunjukkan bahwa selalu ada celah di tengah sanksi Perserikatan Bangsa-Bangsa yang terus diperbarui, menyusul uji coba peluru kendali dan nuklir pemerintahan Kim Jong-un. Sanksi-sanksi itu tidak termasuk larangan atas ekspor tekstil.

 

"Kami menerima pesanan dari seluruh dunia," kata salah seorang pengusaha berdarah Korea-China di Dandong, kota perbatasan yang menaungi mayoritas perdagangan dengan Korut. Seperti sekian banyak orang yang diwawancara untuk laporan ini, ia enggan menyebutkan namanya dengan alasan isu yang sensitif.

 

Puluhan agen pakaian beroperasi di Dandong, berperan sebagai perantara untuk pemasok pakaian asal China dan pembeli dari Amerika Serikat, Eropa, Jepang, Korea Selatan, Kanada dan Rusia, kata pengusaha itu.

 

 

"Kami akan bertanya pada pemasok China yang bekerja sama dengan kami apakah mereka berencana untuk buka-bukaan dengan kliennya--kadang pembeli terakhir tidak sadar baju yang mereka dapatkan dibuat di Korea Utara. Ini sangat sensitif," ujarnya.

 

Dengan nilai US$752 juta, tekstil mewakili nilai ekspor terbesar kedua Korut setelah batu bara dan mineral lain, 2016 lalu. Total nilai ekspor Korut secara keseluruhan pada saat itu meningkat 4,6 persen menjadi US$2,82 miliar.

 

Sanksi terbaru PBB, awal bulan ini, sepenuhnya melarang ekspor batu bara.
