So Is The Smuggling of IPhones in China

It seems lie that, in the country in which the majority of electronic products are manufactured, access they are so dramatically limited. One case more than curious, in this sense, is the relationship among China, in particular Shenzhen (place where Foxconn has one of its largest factories), and Apple.

Shenzhen, so we are situated a little, it is in the South of the people’s Republic of China, in Guandong province. 30 years ago was just a village of fishermen, but with the decision of the Government of the territory to become a special economic zone (to test what such would run the capitalist method and pass make the competition to Hong Kong, adjoining City), experienced a brutal growth up to 4.6 million inhabitants, becoming one of the cities with greater economic development and growth of China, and probably in the world.

We could roll us even more and explain all the intricacies that are derived from this great growth and problems that involve (immigration from other parts of China, poor adaptation to new technologies and changes by these immigrants coming from the “ field ”, inflation in the prices of housing, salaries climbing more than what employers need to keep the factories to remain profitable in the area …) , but this is XatakaMovil and not the Blogsalmon, so we’re going to what interests us.

It is well known to all that Apple does not have a price equal to all the countries in which it sells, only need to enter their stores online (Stores). This is due to various reasons, those who enter, for example, the taxes payable.

Let’s talk prices

Let’s do a comparison easy. iPhone 4S of 64GB, price in Spain, free, €799, price in China, if you buy it in the city where it is manufactured, 6788 Yuan (something like € 814), but what is particularly bloody is that, just across the border to Hong Kong (although I belong to China is a Special Administrative Region), you can buy it – if there is stock – by 6688 Hong Kong dollars (652€).

Some say “ but Hong Kong barely have taxes and that allows prices of most things to be much lower ”, verily, I do not dispute it, but that causes a series of conflicts and business opportunities for the most avid Orientals, that – for example – for the output of the iPhone 4S in Hong Kong caused riots and ended for purchasing all stocks of the terminal, leaving the true fans of the brand of Cupertino at the mercy of resellers.

Because of these actions the phone price increased around 10% within Hong Kong (in the gray market in MongKok) and up to 25% in the largest market of electronics in Asia, Huaqiangbei, Shenzhen and other major cities such as Shanghai or Beijing (it should be remembered that, as happened with Spain a while ago, some countries receive certain products rather than others, and Hong Kong is always a couple of steps ahead of the rest of China).

As you can imagine, “ go ” cellular phones across the border on the sly, is not legal (I have to pay taxes and then the business stops flowing out as profitable) but hundreds of people, methods increasingly ingenious attempt to skip the standards to earn a fistful of euros more per month and that’s that police is taking letters in the subject and reinforcing security at border crossings such as Futian and Luohu, Shenzhen , as you can see in the video that we leave right up.
