The world is inter-connected globally, which we are now only too aware. In 2019 I made a decision to invest in a trading office and showroom in Shanghai, China. So, we hired a crew, designed and fitted out the showroom. In November 2019 we opened our doors, in the G-Hub International Trading Hub, Shanghai. Christmas came and went, we were excited about the prospects 2020 could bring. Then Shanghai team went on Chinese New Year vacation and….. the world changed utterly.
Our Shanghai showroom and team were closed down for six weeks plus.. Then the virus arrived with us in Europe and now its our turn to be in lock-down. Thankfully, our team are now back at work in China and delivering an abundance of trading opportunities.
Ironically, China is open for business and we are working with numerous manufacturers to deliver export business into China.
We set out in 2019 to build a company in Shanghai to deliver export business for our clients and the opportunities are increasing by the day. We are now working with customers in China that seek both private-label and branded products in a number of key sectors; food and beverage, health and beauty, over the counter pharmacy and cosmetics.
