The city leads in trading with countries along the Maritime Silk Road

“We Africans know that Dongguan has a very close cooperation with us, for example, the Huajian Shoes Factory successfully landed in Ethiopia. We are looking forward to Dongguan’s next plan”, proposed by Ethiopia reporter, at the conference meeting with the Donguan Vice Major, Mr. Zhang Ke.

Dongguan is a very inclusive city, with a foreign trade oriented economy. From this January to April, the total foreign trade volume between Donguan and countries along the Maritime Silk Road hit 6.1 billion USD, registering a year-on-year growth of 9.9%, higher than the average province growth.

To further improve environment for trade and business, the city will promote the use of robots, in response to the future labor shortage. In terms of environmental problem, the government will combine the river treatment with economic development together.

“Actually we need to go out and invest more, as the countries along the Maritime Silk Road have invested us more than we have done for them”, according to Mr. Zhang. “We are mulling to establish offices in major hubs in countries along the Maritime Silk Road, to better service for the Dongguan-invested companies there”.

Huajian Shoes Factory is among one of the biggest Dongguan invested projects in Africa, which employs a large number of local workers in its Ethiopian base.
