The international wholesale market in Yiwu attracts more and more sellers and buyers

After the New Year holidays, the international wholesale market, one of the largest centers of China's foreign trade, has reopened in Yiwu City County. For many years, a variety of goods have been supplied from here to all corners of the globe: from clothes and souvenirs to auto parts. After the easing of the anti-bullying policy of the People's Republic of China, the former revival returns to Yiwu. On the first day after the opening, almost 220 thousand people visited the market — about 15% more than at the same time a year earlier. Wholesalers are optimistic.
