Ep 5: CGTN challenges people to go without foreign products
The world is more interconnected than ever before: we rely on each other, share with each other and benefit each other.
Foreign foods line supermarket shelves from Beijing to Shanghai and many other Chinese cities, and Chinese products are sold in every corner of the globe.
What would modern life be like if we rejected products or brands from other countries? What if rising protectionism made it impossible to buy from foreign businesses?
To answer these questions, CGTN proposed a challenge: Try to live for one day without global trade.
We invited people from all over the world to film and share their experience and, in this episode, Andrew Harrison from England and Xie Peng from China tried “one day without anything made in China” and “one day without foreign brands”, respectively.
