Several Indian small firms are making a great living by importing and selling China made plastic products. Some have turned into what they call in their indigenous language ‘crorepatis’. A crorepati is a person whose worth is over Rs. 10 million. One US Dollar roughly equals 65 Indian Rupees and one crore means 10 million rupees, it is considered a great value there, especially in the small towns and villages.
I personally know an Indian guy who studied with me together at the University of Bristol who has made a fortune selling plastic products imported from China to India. He just buys from this one plastic molding company in China and sells the products all over India.
He drives a BMW X6 and also owns a boat of his own. A boat is considered a great luxury in India. It is funny how the Chinese economy is growing so rapidly. The Chinese people are very hard-working indeed.
