NEWS: Cross-Straits Fakes Bedevil Xiamen's Gulangyu Island

Posted by admin on Jul 6, 2011 12:49:50 PM
Tourists need to sharpen their vigilance when buying Taiwan products on Gulangyu Island in Xiamen because many of the items are counterfeit, said Zeng Qingguang, a senior officer in the Siming district administration of industry and commerce in Xiamen.

The fake goods are mostly cigarettes, mobile phones and watches, he noted. A few are clothes and jewelry.

Some of the cigarettes are labeled "Taiwan well-known brands", but Zeng, who has visited the island across the Straits, has never found them in Taiwan markets.

He said the cigarettes are fakes "made by illegal Taiwan factories".
