    Hi,

    I am new to this forum - and this seems like something I would definitely be interested in. As I was born in Hong Kong, and grew up in the US, I believe I can definitely offer something unique that is rare to find these days. I feel that trust & ability to communicate are the most important factors for business with China, and hopefully I can contribute.

    Definitely looking into getting an advertiser membership

    As someone who has been on both sides (i.e. as an importer in the UK) and now based in China helping people source from china and managing their risks, I feel it definitely gives you a unique advantage in being able to understand the concerns of the buyers (e.g. quality, fraud, etc.) and at the same time, the challenges that chinese manufacturers face (e.g. customers asking for "best quality" at the "lowest price", etc.). So I feel, your UK importing experience would definitely help you connect with the importers. It is important to note that, due to the chinese govt. policies, the cost of running a business in China for "foreign owned enterprises" is going up by the day and has increased significantly in the last 3 years, so I suggest you choose a business model that takes this into consideration, as there are quite a few ways foreign enterprises can enter China.

    hi,

    Yeah, my thoughts exactly, what's wrong with Yiwu? Saw many UK companies buying there. True that Yiwu is not famous for its high quality products or customer service, but for some products or customers that require really low MOQs or really competitive price, Yiwu is the place to go, no doubt.
