Although there are still some problems in the electronics industry chain, the original so-called copycat products have shrunk greatly.
"Especially the current Huaqiangbei industrial chain is becoming more and more clear. With Huaqiangbei as the window, there are strong manufacturing industries in Shenzhen and Dongguan behind it." Song Ding believes that "this huge electronic product manufacturing chain is still the most powerful in the world. The manufacturing chain has become a huge advantage for Huaqiangbei’s development."
