The European economy “disease”, the U.S. economy is still “rehabilitation period”. Everyone knows that in today’s global economic integration, no one can do to be spared in Yiwu International Trade City, Christmas goods industry the first to perceive that this may allow enterprises to “cold” cold.
“Significantly reduce the volume of orders, the amount is pitifully small.” Yiwu Christmas Products Industry Association, Chen Jinlin in an interview with reporters, expressed a Christmas in the traditional sense of the upcoming foreign trade order, the peak of the trace of bear consider. Yiwu Christmas industry spokesman admitted that he thinks this year, Yiwu Christmas procurement industry peak period will be delayed a month or so, large enterprises continue to maintain stable development, small business survival more difficult but also an inevitable trend.
Trading environment is not optimistic
Yiwu enterprises worried
International Trade City market dealers Wang told reporters that each time you go to the bank to the customer payment, he will carefully look at the exchange rate. The only primary school education, business units, to study the changes in exchange rates, has become the entire communities of practice often have to face problems.
Yiwu Christmas Industry Association Secretary-General Chen Jinlin In fact, just like Pharaoh business operators perceived yuan in the process of increasing appreciation of the foreign trade products less competitive impact, not knowing the depth of the debt crisis in Europe under the influence of many Christmas products are no longer marketable in Europe, mainly with local purchasing power in decline and market confidence.
However, Chen Jinlin affected by the appreciation of the renminbi and the European debt crisis, the turmoil in the Middle East in the international situation, could have much to offer the Middle East and North African markets have become subtle.
The argument has also been the identity of the Yiwu scale export companies. Purcell Group Ningbo Import & Export Co., Ltd. of Yiwu excellent news, general manager of the money days when talking about the 2012 international trade situation, the front even with a “bad” to describe. “The reason to use harsh to describe today’s international market, mainly reflected in traditional consumer the United States does not appear the sign of a strong recovery, and high hopes for the European market continued last year’s weak state, especially the Italian market is particularly serious, the past can confirm the order within a week, and now has been delayed for two months. “

Chen Jinlin believe that the purchase 12 years ago, Yiwu merchants from Guangdong, creating a situation of selling Christmas items in the International Trade City, and now the Yiwu Christmas products production and sales-based products is still at a low competitive level, profits are basically The rise in labor wages and raw materials to “eat out, industry profit margins for the first time fell below 10 percent, the lowest close to 8%.

He told reporters that the past, this time foreign will continue to the store, it is occasionally found with foreign, in the first quarter this year never received any orders for over 100,000.

In Yiwu International Trade City, the investigation found that the information sublet stalls of the Christmas supplies business households accounted for a large part of a senior pitch intermediaries disclosed to reporters that this year’s Christmas goods stall rents about 15% decline in Over the years there have been no phenomenon. His calculations to reporters, according to the present about the ordinary stall an annual rent of 30 million, with sales at least to do in order to maintain the payment of rent more than 3 million, not including personnel and tax costs, only for each single the amount of yuan up and down, and businessmen selling pressure can be imagined.

Chen Jinlin said he hoped to take this opportunity to reshape the industry of Yiwu Christmas products brand image, build a wider bridge for enterprises to export trade.
If the function is said Association top-down policy to promote the members’ self-help industry at the micro level representation. Yiwu the Hualong Christmas crafts person in charge of Zhu Xiaoping, told reporters direct access to European and American markets is a way of Yiwu Christmas business households profits Battle In fact, Christmas ornaments that he developed about 2 m height, design styles and materials added to the more practical elements.
