Are we guilty of industrial racism?

In this exclusive episode, we explore the concept of industrial racism and its impact on the perception of Chinese equipment brands like LiuGong, Sany, Sunward, and XCMG.

We discuss concerns about alleged dumping and the protection of domestic manufacturers, but also question the dismissal of these brands based purely on their country of origin.

Highlighting the significant market positions of XCMG and Sany, we argue that such bias not only fosters division but also deprives us of potential innovations and advancements in the industry.
