Recently, the image of “Made in China” has been promoted extensively. Many South Africans have said their first impression of “Made in China” is the innovation and high technology which is represented by Chinese made cellphones. According to Chen Lei, general manager of Jiangling Motors South Africa Ltd. , the promotion of “Made in China” in Africa has benefitted from the good relationship and increasing cooperation between China and Africa. “The Belt and Road initiative and FOCAC have boosted tremendously the reputation of Chinese products in Africa,” said Chen.
