    This paper argues thatthe dramatic growth of "Made in China" products is primarily a consequence of political will of the Chinese authorities to take advantage of the new international division of labor for its development. Until now, "Made in China" products should be more qualified with "Made with China" products than "Made by China" products.In many cases, they are the result of a globally organized production, involving activities realized in different countries. As the development of "Made in China" products has a lot of impacts on the global economic order, only efforts of China to shift from "China price" to "China value" or "Chinese brand" cannot guarantee the future success of "Made in China" in an international market. The future of "Made in China" seems to go rather "Made with the World" than "Made for the World".
