Dangerous ‘Tofu-Dreg’ Projects Remain a Persistent Problem in Many Parts of China
This is the steel bar used in the construction of a building in China. Its fragility is disturbing. In China, it’s everyone’s dream to own their own home. China’s real estate industry is arguably the largest in the world. The majority of Chinese people’s savings are invested in their homes. But the quality of China’s housing construction has always been a concern for buyers and residents alike. The Chinese refer to buildings that are of poor quality or even have serious safety problems as tofu-dreg projects.
These are just some of the tofu-dreg projects in China so far this year. The term “tofu-dreg” was first coined by former Chinese Premier Zhu Rongji. After he inspected the collapse of floodwalls in a southern city in 1998, the Premier angrily criticized it as a “tofu-dreg project” when asked about the cause of the failure. Since then, the term “tofu-dreg construction” has appeared frequently in all major Chinese media and has gradually become well known.
More than two decades later, the collapse of “tofu-dreg” projects in China has not disappeared or decreased. Instead, it has become more frequent. It keeps repeating itself and eventually becomes a characteristic of China that is known by the world.

In the past 30 years, China has been changing its appearance rapidly. High-rise buildings of all kinds are springing up in cities, not only in metropolitan areas but also in small cities that are in the third or fourth tier. In addition to buildings, various large bridges and sea bridges have been built throughout the country.
High-speed railways and highways are connecting cities. But with the passage of time, under these shiny appearances, more and more problems began to appear, so the Chinese-style proper term “tofu dregs construction” was born.
