    (Updates with Chinese response in sixth
    paragraph.)
    Nov. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Dozens of suspected counterfeit
    parts have been installed on U.S. defense equipment
    from Raytheon Co., L-3 Communications Holdings Inc.
    and Boeing Co., including aircraft deployed to
    Afghanistan.
    The Senate Armed Services Committee found
    counterfeit parts -- usually from China -- on at least
    seven aircraft, including the Lockheed Martin Corp.
    C-130 J transport plane, Boeing P- 8A Poseidon maritime
    patrol and L-3 27J Spartan transport.
    “Suspect electronic parts from China were installed on
    military systems and subsystems that were
    manufactured by Raytheon Co., L-3 Communications
    and Boeing,” said the memo from the committee’s staff,
    released yesterday in advance of a hearing today.
    None of the examples were connected to instances of
    lives lost or dramatic failures causing an aircraft crash,
    Michigan Senator Carl Levin, the committee chairman,
    said.
    Still, the committee staff has “identified lots of places
    where, unless that correction was made, there was real
    fear that those kind of disastrous consequences could
    take place,” Levin said.
    China supports the fight against counterfeit goods,
    Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said at a
    briefing today in Beijing.
    “China’ s government is actively promoting cooperation
    in fighting fake or counterfeit goods with relevant
    authorities in other countries and such efforts are
    welcome,” Hong said.

    Mkuu siyo propaganda bali ni kwamba kutokana na ushindani wa biashara na azma ya kutaka faida, ni vigumu kukwepa bidhaa zitokazo China. China, India na nchi zingine za Asia ndizo zina rekodi ya kuzalisha bidhaa bei nafuu sana (cheap labour).

    Kutokana na utandawazi wa soko huria, karibu wazalishaji wote wa bidhaa wa nchi za magharibi wanazalishia bidhaa zao China. Mshahara wa kima cha chini kwa miji kama ya Ghuangzou yaweza kuwa kati ya $ 300 hadi $ 800 kwa mwezi kutegemea na bidhaa inayozalishwa na soko lake. Kwa nchi za magharibi mtu huyo anaweza akawa analipwa kati ya $ 2,000 na 3,000 kwa mwezi mbali na marupurupu kama bima ya afya.

    Na kwa tarakimu za WTO inakadiriwa kuwa 40% ya bidhaa za madawa na silaha ni 'counterfeit'. Hivyo basi upende usipende lazima ukutane na countefeit products duniani. Kinachofanyika basi ni kuimarisha mifumo ya udhibiti na ukaguzi bila kusahau maadili mema katika kupambana na hili janga la dunia.
