That is to say, Made in "?" is strongest.
Not sure - If something is 'made in Japan' it gives an alure of Quality and strenght - though Japan now outsources most of its manufacturing. German and Swiss products would probably be up there too.

I was gonna say Sweeden but then I thought of Ikea - LOL. Volvo and Saab are well known for quality.

The best products are still ones with the highest amount of highly skilled hand-made input and high quality components. So any place that has high labour costs means the market for those products is generally limited to high-end products...not mass-produced products which rely on lower quality and lower costs to manufacture.

Most european countries fit this bill....but "Swiss-made" still seems to hold the most cashe...and has for a long time.

I drive a 2001 VW Passat, and its maintenance costs are hard to swallow. But it is definitely a unique car, it drives well and it has a structure as solid as what one would expect of a car from Deutschland.

German cars and products are great, but Japanese cars seem to require much less maintenance.

few decades ago, Made in Japan implied poor quality....
today, Made in China means poor quality....
Most countries in the world were poor few decades ago say 1950s and 1960s. But the Japanese economy was still better than Britain and France at the time. Japan surpassed Germany in 1967 and became the world's second largest economy. Until few years ago, Japan's per capita income was the largest in the world. Made in China really is poor quality and you can't use the same reasoning as Japan's, where has been distorted by full of prejudiced anti-Japan media all over the world. There is no reason the Chinese products deliberately claim being Japanese instead of being Chinese if they really are of good quality. Japan has never claimed anyone's products as Japanese.
