ochserve the whole country to go globaloch and to become an international circulation and exhibition center of small commodities, the yiwu market is undergoing a transition in its organizational form. it is transforming from a traditional bazaar to a new type of specialized international market equipped with modernized and shopping mall-like infrastructure. its function has become multi-faceted, expanding from the simple trade of goods to exhibition, information sharing and innovation. in-cash and in-kind on-site transactions have been replaced by the latest means such as placing orders, e-commerce and logistics. with its rippling effect getting ever stronger, the market is playing a more important role in leading regional economic development. while the status of the market as the primary wholesaler is consolidating steadily, the rudiments of an economic sphere are already in place. yiwu is faced with a strategic opportunity to become an organic part of the global commercial network on all fronts, and the city is moving forward on its way to realize its mission of serving the whole of china to go global. breakthroughs in coordinated development of trade and industry — in

In the lead up to the Beijing Olympic Games, the city is attracting a greater number of professional buyers and visitors every day. In today’s On the Road, let’s take a stroll in the city with our tour guide Ning Yan. Yiwu has a population of 1.8 million, 60 percent of whom originate from other locations. Of the massive migrant population, more than 10,000 are business people and merchants from different countries and regions all over the world. Jamil Alariki from Yemen is one of them. He and his family have lived in the city for 6 years. Jamil has his own trade company called Five Oceans. He first came to China in 1994 as a medical student in a college in south China. He returned to Yemen after graduation and worked as a doctor. However, a year later he discovered that medicine was not the career he hoped it would be. Seeking a way out, Jamil decided to come back to China to try his luck. He initially came to Guangzhou, the capital city of south China’s Guangdong Province in 2002. “China’s economy is getting better and better. Most people in the Middle East purchase and consume Chinese products. Oil rich countries there do not manufacture but rely on imports for a majority of the products they consume. China is a main exporter of these products.” Jamil registered his import and export garment company to function in Guangzhou. One year later, he left Guangzhou and moved to Yiwu, hoping to find more business opportunities. “I came here because Yiwu is small with some concentrated market areas. The factories are quite near too. I find everything I need in four hours at most. But in Guangzhou, I would have to take an airplane and make a purchase in other provinces which was a great waste of time and money.” With six employees in his company, Jamil’s business is expanding from garments to daily necessities and bed sets. Jamil says there are 200 such companies from his country buying and selling a variety of products in Yiwu. “I sell many kinds of products, from garments to bed sets. I also sell jewelry and other ornaments. I’m still trying to include even more varieties to meet customers’ needs.” A typical daily routine sees Jamil arriving in the international commodity city, a high-rise building and the main location of the world’s largest commodities fair. With numerous shops, the lobby of the building presents a clean and tidy image. Jamil passes by shops selling bags. “You can find all sorts of bags here which are of very high quality and fashionable. They are export products sold not only in Arab countries but also in Europe, the United States and Africa.” Jamil says the fair is so big that it would take as many as three months to visit every shop in the building, let alone all the markets in the city. With such a large fair, it’s hard to imagine that the city was a very small town only 15 years ago. Jamil recalls his first time in the city. “I first came here ten years ago in 1998 when there was only one old market in the Garden Road and the city was mainly engaged in garbage disposal business. Trade started when substandard goods were brought to sell in the city at low prices. Later more businessmen and better quality goods were attracted to the fair which has gradually developed to today’s scale.” In the main commodities hall, visitors can easily find everything they could possibly want, from daily necessities to jewelry and toys at much cheaper prices then elsewhere in the world. There are plenty of expensive products too, like world famous brand suitcases and leatherwear, and handicrafts. Jamil says the cost for renting a storeroom can be high with some at the best locations setting you back as much as one million Yuan a year. “For many manufacturers, the fair is their only reliable sales opportunity. A series of goods sold in the market are actually manufactured in the city, such as large and expensive industrial machines. Of course, most of the commodities sold here are manufactured in other provinces and cities.” Jamil has been doing trade in Yiwu for six years now. Declining to reveal his income, Jamil says his company and business is medium-sized compared with other businesses in the fair. He says next year, he plans to set up a branch in Guangzhou, one of the largest cities and a business hub to be found in south China. Jamil says that although he is a Muslim, he feels very comfortable living in the city. “Great progress has taken place since China opened to the outside world in the 1980s so there is a deepened understanding between the Chinese people and those from Middle Eastern countries.” Jamil says that in his spare time he is free to go to a mosque and the family can always eat outside at one of the Chinese, Muslim or western style restaurants. He adds that a special service center and an international school for foreigners and their children are also being built in the city. ]]> 义乌电脑市场 - 义乌品牌电脑 - 义乌奥美电脑 - 诚博国际_诚博国际娱乐_诚博国际娱乐城 http://en.ywbb.com/27.html Sun, 24 Jun 2018 23:03:04 +0000 http://en.ywbb.com/?p=27 Located in eastern China’s Zhejiang province, the city of Yiwu was an unknown town twenty years ago, but now, it has turned into one of the busiest cities in China, attracting people from different places to do business and live there. Yiwu is said to have the greatest density of foreign population in China, with nearly 10,000 foreigners, and the number is still rising. What is the magnet in the city that’s attracting so many people from overseas? CRI’s Yixiu finds out. Reporter: Measuring around 1,100 square kilometers, almost the size of Hong Kong, Yiwu seems just like another ordinary small inland city in eastern China. However, in the past two decades, the city has grown into a mega market that is attracting the attention from all over the world. Let’s pay attention to the following figures. There are more than 58,000 booths spread in the city, offering over 400,000 kinds of commodities covering 43 industries. From toothpicks to digital equipment, you can find almost everything for daily use here. At least 200,000 businessmen gather in Yiwu doing businesses on small commodities, and their shops receive 200,000 visitors a day on average. Our of the numbers of businessmen and customers, there are faces from every corner of the world. “I am from Poland, I am from England, I am from India, I am from Thailand, South Africa, Chicago, Illinois…” There are currently over 10,000 foreign residents living in the city, and registered entrance of foreigners reached 130,000 last year. In terms of the density of foreign population, the small city might rank the No.1 in China. You may wonder what makes this small town so attractive to foreigners. Terry Harley from Britain explains why he came here. “I saw it on TV in England, I saw a news program that showed Europeans were going for business in Yiwu, so I decided to come, I am very happy that I came.” Just like Jerry, many foreign businessmen are amazed by the burgeoning small commodity market in Yiwu, they came here to search for the best business deals and hope to fulfill their business dreams. “We usually do (business in) jewelries and accessories, the reason that we came to Yiwu is the variety.” “The business I am here for is for gifts, for trademarks back in New Zealand.” “My business is man-made fibers; Yiwu I am told is a very special place that you can buy every thing here, everything in one place.” There is a famous saying that if you want to visit all the booths in Yiwu’s market and stay 3 minutes at each for eight hours a day, it will take you at least a year. To businessmen, the Yiwu market is full of gold mines, and there are opportunities for everyone to get rich. Everyday, over 1,000 TEU containers of products are sent from Yiwu to around 200 countries and regions. In the first half of this year, the city saw over 800 million US dollars in trade volume. With the fame of Yiwu as a mega market for small commodities growing globally, more and more foreign businessmen are flooding into the city. While searching for good business here, they also brought opportunities and fortune to the city. A native shop owner says foreign deals are growing into a major part of their business. “In the past, most of our products were sold in the domestic market, with the reputation of the Yiwu market growing worldwide, more and more foreign businesses have become our clients, such as those from Europe and the United States, accounting for around 30 percent of our sales.” As foreign businessmen have become an important part of the city’s economy and social live, Yiwu is embracing more and more new comers of different nationalities and diverse cultures. Some foreigners choose Yiwu to start their career and the city has become their homes outside their motherland. Azimi from Afghanistan arrived in Yiwu to start his business after he graduated as an oversea student in Beijing. Just like some other foreign businessmen in the city, he owned a trade company here and speaks fluent Chinese; however, two years ago, Yiwu was somewhere he had never heard of. “I came to Yiwu in 2001 for the first time, at that time, my cousin told me that there was a city in China called Yiwu, which sounds like YOU, I had no idea where it was.” During his fist visit in Yiwu, Azimi saw the early phase of the small commodity market there, which impressed him a lot. After he finished his studies, he finally decided to start his career in Yiwu, and the fast development of the city has brought big profits for him. At the beginning, Azimi planned to stay in Yiwu for a year to earn some extra money before continuing his study, however, he had to change the plan now. “Now I decided to continue my stay in Yiwu, because my business is going quite well, which is out of my expectation.” Now, Azimi’s company sells various products for daily use from Yiwu to many other countries, including the U.S and European countries. Like many other foreign businessmen in the city, Yiwu has now become what their lives and careers are all about. From an unknown town where people earn their livings by doing small scale exchange to an international trade center that attracts the attention from all over the world, increasing number of foreigners arrives at the city for business. They profit from the city’s development, and also fuel the future develoment of the city. Pushed by the integration of different cultures, the small inland city is turning into the foreland of globalization. People with different backgrounds gather here and try hard to realize their business dreams. Small commodities have changed the landscape of the city, and also have changed the lives of its people here. Backanchor: Thank you, Yixiu, for taking us to this flourishing city of Yiwu. Life in China will continue after a short break. ]]> 义乌电脑市场 - 义乌品牌电脑 - 义乌奥美电脑 - 诚博国际_诚博国际娱乐_诚博国际娱乐城 http://en.ywbb.com/12.html http://en.ywbb.com/12.html#respond Thu, 21 Jun 2018 22:00:46 +0000 http://en.ywbb.com/?p=12 Yiwu (simplified Chinese: 义乌; traditional Chinese: 義烏; pinyin: Yìwū) is a city of about 1.2 million people[3] in central Zhejiang province, China.

History

Yiwu was founded as Wushang County in 222 BC, during the Qin dynasty. It was renamed Yiwu County in 624 AD. Trade has been historically important in Yiwu since the surrounding area has little arable soil. Even before 1600s, Yiwu men would carry sewing needles, threads, sugar chunks and other small commodities in their bamboo baskets, using a shoulder-pole, and travel to surrounding rural villages in exchange for chicken feathers. Chicken feathers could be either used as a fertilizer for their own lands, or made into feather dusters for exporting. This “Sugar-For-Chicken Feathers” tradition had become part of Yiwu culture. As the trading population grew larger, the earliest wholesale markets emerged in Yiwu around 1700s. After the founding of People’s Republic of China in 1949, the free market was once considered capitalistic and hence officially suppressed, forcing Yiwu people to continue their trade secretly. It was only after Deng Xiaoping’s economic reform in 1978 did the Yiwu market thrive again, becoming one of the first free marketplaces in PRC’s history. The cement boards over a stinky ditch nearby Huqingmen street, set up by the local government as the first marketplace in 1982, later became the present day Yiwu International Trade Mart after 27 years of development.[4] In May 1988 the former Yiwu County was upgraded to a county-level city. In 1995 Yiwu ranked the 47th among China’s 100 most powerful counties/cities regarding comprehensive economic strength and in the same year listed as Zhejiang’s sole city among the nation’s experimental counties/cities of comprehensive reform. In 2001 Yiwu’s overall economy ranked 19th of all counties (cities) of China. Yiwu’s early culture has given birth to a number of notable figures in literature, art, military, education and engineering. Among these were Chen Wangdao, China’s first translator of the Communist Manifesto; Wu Han, historian and former deputy mayor of Beijing; Zhu Zhixi, the engineer who harnessed the Yellow River; Zhu Danxi, one of the four distinguished doctors of the Jin and Yuan Dynasties; Zong Ze, a well-known general from the Song Dynasty who resisted aggression by the State of Jin; and the ancestors of Wang Leehom, a famous singer.

Administration

Yiwu is part of the greater Municipal region of Jinhua, although it has a distinct urban core. On China’s administrative strata it is a sub-prefecture level city. It has under its jurisdiction 15 towns and 8 villages, which covers 1,102.8 square kilometres, 100 square kilometres of which are urban area of 700,000 people (2010 estimate). There has been talk of merging the Yiwu and Jinhua areas into a single municipal zone or economic entity, but this plan has yet to make its way into any formal discussion.[citation needed]

Economy

Yiwu is famous in China as a commodities centre. The Yiwu market developed and managed by Zhejiang China Commodities City Group Co., Ltd. (Public, SHA:600415).[5] Yiwu’s China Small-Commodity Market has for 6 consecutive years topped China’s 100 top open markets and was for successive years listed as “China’s civilized open market”. It has been named as the banner of China’s market economy and with a large variety of quality but cheaper commodities. There have been a significant increase in Arab traders since 9/11, as Middle East businessmen found it difficult to travel to the United States due to visa restrictions. The Arab presence has fostered the rise of many mosques and Middle Eastern restaurants. The GDP reached 52 billion yuan in 2009, an increase of 9% from 2008, and the per capita GDP reached 71,457 yuan (US$10,461). The per capita urban disposable income reached 30,841 yuan and rural pure income 12,899 yuan, increasing 7.4% and 8.5% respectively. Its 4C-grade airport has over a dozen of air routes to cities including Beijing, Guangzhou, Shantou, Weifang and Shenzhen. The Zhejiang-Jiangxi Railway and Hangzhou-Jinhua Expressway passes through the city, making Yiwu an important local transportation hub. By train it is less than 3 hours from Shanghai. “Yiwu, 300 kilometres away from Shanghai, is the largest market of petty commodity wholesales in the world where various foreign buyers go to place orders”, according to ‘Chinese Figures Astonishing the World’, joint report from the United Nations,the World Bank and Morgan Stanley. The city was ranked first among countrylevel cities In “the 2004 Most Favourite Chinese Cities of Domestic and Foreign Public in 2004”. China Commodity City (CCC), the large wholesale market of Yiwu, was honored by the UN, the World Bank and Morgan Stanley amongst other world authorities in 2005 as the “largest small commodity wholesale market in the world”. The counterfeiting industry has been a problem in Yiwu due to the thriving market. As noted by Eamonn Fingleton, the author of In the Jaws of the Dragon: America’s Fate in the Coming Era of Chinese Dominance in 2008, “As documented by the author Tim Phillips in 2005… [t]he city of Yiwu … functions as a sort of ‘Wall Street’ for the counterfeiting industry, providing a vast marketplace where, Phillips states, 100,000 counterfeit products are openly traded and 2,000 metric tons of fakes change hands daily.”[6] According to Xinhua, more than 60% of Christmas trinkets worldwide in 2013 came from Yiwu.[7][8]
