I suspect in Germany's case this is caused by the fact that while those workers that are employed create high value products there are many unemployed, thus lowering the average income level. Ie if somehow those unemployed people vanished Germany's income per capita would be higher (obviously).

Maybe one needs to seperate China into different regions. I suspect the export sophistication is closer to the expected level in the coastal areas (those that actually produce export goods).

China's exports are not special at all.. They export a lot but they export pure quality products..
