There are so many economic miracles and overnight fortunes stories putting on the stage day after day in our country, but this city is an exception.20 years ago, it's a rural area surrounded by rising and falling in long gentle slopes mountains. But right now, it becoming the main bridge links all the places all over the world. So ideal city that some of you may guess it must be Shenzhen for it's close to Hongkong, access to the sea and it's the first special economic zones in China, so it's developed quickly like the speed of light,and others may guess it's Shanghai or other coastal metropolis with long-standing ties to the international-bisiness community.But the answer is so surprised,nong of them. It's name is Yiwu agent, a small town in East China's Zhejiang Province.Today, it blooming to be the largest wholesale markets, it has another name called "Purchaser's Paradise" , where attractive thousands of businessmen around the world for it's lowest prices on the cognated products.
But how and why did the markets develop so quickly just in a period of two decades, how did this isolated farming town with no port, without a large (by China's standards) or skilled (by any standards) population base, nor access to any noteworthy raw materials, develop into a major player in the global supply chain?
Haresh Ahuja, an Indian sourcing agent, raised in Hong Kong, who has been coming to Yiwu for more than a decade give us an answer. At that time, Yiwu didn't have the factories, epic wholesale shopping centers or the accompanying luxury hotels. Yiwu started out as a 'stock market,' he said. If a manufacturer's client rejected items for quality control or some other reasons, the stock was shipped here. Sometimes the goods were completely defective, so they would be sold for well below the cost of production (and often below the cost of raw materials). A guy from Africa might come and buy 10,000 TV remote controls, none of which actually work, but maybe he knows that he can strip out some of the components and resell them for more than he has to pay here. Other times there were minor problems that might not affect a less distinguishing customer.
Clearly Yiwu is a phenomenon that could only happen in post-reforms China. Seven series BMWs vie with rickshaw bicycles for manuevering space on the city's crowded streets. New Arabian restaurants and American fast food chains pop up around nearly every corner. Specactular, verdant green mountains are left forgotten in the smoggy distance as the people in the valley below rush about in search of the next big deal.
On the surface, Yiwu's culture is all-business. There are no weekends at the wholesale markets. Sales staff rest only on national holidays, working 7-day weeks the rest of year. As a result, they approach work in a surly state characterized by utter exhaustion and a complete lack of enthusiasm. Many lay their heads on their desks in defeat. Others curl up on a cardboard mat in a vain attempt to recharge their batteries. Still more fade in and out of a half-numb trance while playing online computer games, refusing even to look up from the screen to answer a customer's questions. Smiles are rare. Any unusual requests are unceremoniously denied before any real thought is given to the idea's feasibility. Even simple things, like asking that each product be packaged in its own box, instead of in a box of 4, is quickly written off as "too much trouble."
There has a conception formed in people's mind that everything in Yiwu is very cheap,the products loose innovation,quality,creativity,people are tired of working,they loose health and happiness. Yiwu becomes the nickname of low price.If we don't pay attention to this the yiwu agent market will become the commodity hell,it's not helpful to the city's propects.
