The foreign-led processing trade is an important driving factor in the process of China's rapid economic growth. Since the reform and opening up, China's foreign trade is growing rapidly with the product structure upgrading. Even so, the products made in China are still the byword of the low quality. To a large extent, China's export structure is not due to the local enterprises improving the technical content of the export, but to the processing trade and foreign enterprises participation. More and more study is focusing on the export product quality analysis and its influencing factors. However, it also obscures the real quality of Chinese exports, especially high-tech products. This paper measures the true quality level of Chinese high-tech exports by quality index model, and compares it with the obscured quality and exports quality of 14 countries.
