When the President of the 2nd largest economy in the world and the world’s factory China urges for the development of blockchain technology to be expedited, you know things are about to get real in the world of technology..
Plans are afoot to make Blockchain technology a key part of China’s innovation program and also to increase investment in the sector..
Hot on the heels of this call by the Chinese President, The Standing Committee of the 13th National People’s Congress in China passed a cryptography law on the 26th October that will be effective on January 1, 2020..
If this is not focus, then I don’t know what is..
China opened up for global trade around 1980 and became an economic superpower in the 2000’s achieving some dramatic growth in the last 30 odd years. China has grown into one of the significant financial and economic muscles on the planet.
Chinese goods have received a broad acceptance globally and many businesses are keen on importing goods from China.
However, the most painstaking obstacle that many face is how to go about shipping from China successfully. This might be a difficult task, especially for newbies and sometimes even the professionals.
I am sure that you wouldn’t like getting trapped by unnecessary delays, high delivery costs, and unreliable suppliers like many have.
Sunny Sun, the co-founder of BanSar, a professional freight forwarder in China has provided some tips on how to make shipping from China easier.
China, often termed as “the world’s factory” is unavoidable when it comes to global trade. As of 2017, China accounted for 15% of the world’s GDP. China’s GDP is 64% of that of USA thereby making it the second largest economy in the world.
For majority of the countries around the world, when importing Chinese products, international freight movement is required and you will definitely deal with a variety of freight forwarding companies.
Unverified statistics indicate that in the city of Shanghai China alone, there are more than 10,000 freight forwarders registered. It is conceivable that the total number in China is even more astronomical.
Chinese freight forwarders have also had a bad rap due to a few of them perpetuating fraud and other illegal activities which are affecting many of the legitimate Chinese freight forwarders.
“How can I choose a qualified freight forwarder in China from such a large number?” is a question that might be on the minds of many people.
