Today's China : Uniquely African, made in China

BEIJING (AP) - Chinese media say up to 90 percent of the vuvuzelas sold in South Africa during the World Cup are made in China, with local manufacturers readying for a new boost in demand.
If those buzzing, honking vuvuzelas are marring your World Cup experience, don't expect much sympathy from Chinese businesswoman Gua Lili.
Gua's Guangda Toy Factory in the eastern manufacturing hub of Yiwu has produced and shipped more than 1 million of the plastic trumpets, whose sound has been likened to a swarm of angry bees. Production is steaming ahead at up to 20,000 units per day.
And if you thought the noisemakers' would just fade away after the World Cup ends next month, Gua believes demand will simply expand.
