Customs agency locks up foreign clients

SEVEN international exhibitors signed agreements with a trade group from Yangpu District yesterday at the second China International Import Expo.

Shanghai Oujian Network Development Co Ltd, a Customs clearance company from Yangpu, will handle the Customs clearance of goods from the seven exhibitors. Most of these goods have already locked in potential buyers.

Among the exhibitors are Charoen Pokphand Group from Thailand, Stakunft GmbH from Germany and Arai Co Ltd from Japan.

One of the standout exhibits was of the Model 195 high-speed patrol boat from Italian company Ferretti.

Andrea Ameli, the company’s China market director, said Ferretti has long been working with both the Chinese government and private buyers.

“I’m thrilled to see that the Model 195 has drawn so much attention but we can certainly offer more,” said Ameli.

Ge Jizhong, president of Oujian Group, said after the first CIIE, more companies were eyeing opportunities in Shanghai.

“Last year we signed agreements with only three exhibitors; this year it is seven,” said Ge. “And the expo also offered us more chances to expand our business.”

Ge added that in addition to clearance services, clients are now starting to ask them to be their intermediary to find buyers in Shanghai.

Since the first CIIE, Yangpu District has set up two trade platforms to allow foreign exhibitors to continue showcasing their goods after the expo.

One of the platforms, founded by Yangpu and Bangladeshi company Dada Bangla Limited, has brought many local handicrafts to Shanghai and these have been a huge hit in the district.

Yangpu officials said the total volume of the goods from the seven companies that signed agreements exceeded 1.5 billion yuan (US$142.8 million).
