I recently ordered some tools from a Chinese seller (not Alibaba) because they had them much cheaper than any EU supplier for an identical item, even if shipping and duties were included. I assumed this was probably because they came from China anyway so i might as well buy at source.

On opening the box I found it was made in Poland.
They (the Chinese Alibaba merchants) have warehouses in Poland these days.

Doesn't mean they actually pay taxes in Europe, but you don't have to wait for six weeks for your shipping to arrive.
