(Eng. summary below) 美國總統特朗普今日在白宮主持美國製造產品展覽會強調本土要強大,就要著重製造業。產品何處製造,絕對重要。本土設厰,請本土人,買本土貨,能恢復本土情懷,促進團結忠誠。特朗普指出自己接任總統以來,勉力消除對美不公平貿易(例如美中貿易逆差高達三千七百五十億美元),失業率跌至半世紀以來最低,為國家創造七萬億美元經濟。
香港五十到八十年代本土製造業及農業蓬勃,例如玩具、製衣、船厰、陶瓷,但自從中國所謂開放改革,廉價劣質貨物食品入侵,香港商人紛紛去大陸設厰,令本土工業衰落,局限於地產及服務行業,對中國貿易逆差驚人。九七後地價租金大升,政府又不扶助本土小型製造業,工厰大廈已極少工厰。本土大製造業大概僅餘南豐,利豐等幾家。香港要恢復八十年代盛況,就要復興本土工農業。香港製造,一向中西信賴。Today, at Made in America Products Showcase held in the White House, US President Donald Trump stresses in order for a nation to be strong, it has to place a premium on local manufacturing, which will boost national loyalty, love and bonding. Since Trump became the president of the United States 18 months ago, with his policies of tax cuts, protection of US intellectual property, defense of US companies from unfair foreign trade, etc., new unemployment claims have hit a record low in almost half a century, and six million people have received a bonus or pay rise, creating 7 trillion dollars of worth for America. For decades, the US administration has allowed foreign countries to steal jobs from USA, close US factories, and plunder US wealth. But now America, led by Trump, is fighting back and winning. Hong Kong’s local manufacturing industries were also very prosperous from 1950s through 1980s. But with China’s cheap but low-quality goods flooding in, with Hong Kong manufacturers moving their factories to China since the 1980s, and without the HK Government’s support since 1997, the number of local factories, and major local manufacturers have dropped to a minimum. (Nan Fung Group and Li & Fung are two of the few that remain rooted in HK).

特朗普指出自己接任總統以來,拆除出口障礙,捍衛知識產權,保護美國公司不受不公外國貿易做法損害,大刀闊斧減稅,改革醫療保險制度,短短十八個月,美國失業率跌至半世紀以來最低,新增三百七十萬新職位,六百萬人得到加薪,為國家創造七萬億美元經濟,遠遠拋離世上所有國家,大小企業回巢,例如福特車厰、蘋果電子產品、鋼鐵工業等。
幾十年來,歷屆政府無所作為,任由其他國家搶本土人飯碗,關閉本土工厰,掠奪本土財富,但而今美國反攻,重新振作,贏到開巷,堅持不再被人搵笨。例如美中貿易逆差高達三千七百五十億美元,實在離譜,現正與中國嚴正交涉。同時要求世貿及歐盟與美公平貿易,以往與世貿打官司,次次皆輸,皆因世貿畀美國的法官少過其他國家。

按:本土製造,成本高些,但勝在品質可靠,不會做壞招牌,而且令資金流入,而非流出。
