Due to the ongoing pandemic worldwide, China has taken surging orders from industries related to “stay-at-home economy” and medical apparatus. Foshan, as a powerful manufacturing city in China, has seen industrial growth in small-scale household appliances and furniture. Statistically, Foshan has scored a trade volume of 413.12 billion yuan in 2020, with a year-on-year increase of 10.8%; in the first two months in 2021, Foshan has already registered 124.07 billion yuan in import and export, an increase of 84.9% compared to the same period last year, surpassing other nine cities in the Pearl River Delta. Mechanical, electrical products and ceramics are the most wanted orders for foreign buyers.
