Shantou Furthers Trade Cooperation With ASEAN
Date: 2010-04-09      Source:

 Since the official inauguration of the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area this New Year's Day, many import and export enterprises in Shantou have further strengthened their trading activities with ASEAN and some even tried to do business in ASEAN. In the first two months this year, the import and export volume between Shantou and ASEAN showed a growing trend. The export reached 79.70 million dollars and increased by 45.3%, and the import from ASEAN was 53.85 million dollars, an increase of 40.4% over the same period last year. And the toys, textiles and garments, Shantou's key export items, sold well in ASEAN.

 In recent years, the CPC Shantou Committee and the Shantou Municipal Government encouraged local enterprises to develop new markets, and the relevant departments and chambers of commerce provided enterprises with match making services for them to start businesses in ASEAN. Some traditional industries in Shantou, though advanced in technology and equipment, suffered from over capacity and plummeted price. They are now trying to set up industrial parks in ASEAN, upgrade and transform their services and further develop international market.
