Internationals Visit Yiwu's Mayor
On October 21, government representatives of friendship cities and Consul Generals from seven countries and regions (the United Arab Emirates, Slovakia, Poland, Uzbekistan, and more) in Shanghai were invited to participate in the Yiwu International Commodities Fair (YICF). Wang Jian and Duo Jia, leaders of Jinhua and Yiwu, met with the guests to seek new opportunities for the further development of international trade in Yiwu.
At the meeting, Wang Jian, deputy mayor of Jinhua and mayor of Yiwu, introduced the latest social and economic developments of Yiwu to the attendees. He said that the biggest feature of this year's YICF is the idea of high standards, which shows Yiwu's ambition of improving product quality and realizing a trade environment with more freedom so as to make trade in Yiwu's market more convenient. He also hopes that Yiwu's new and old friends will continue to support its development, bringing further exchanges and cooperation with other countries and regions in culture, education, and medical care, to name a few.
Rashed Alqemzi, the representative of the guest group and the Consul General of the United Arab Emirates in Shanghai, said that he has visited Yiwu several times and witnessed its development, transformation, and upgrading. He appreciated the invitation from Yiwu and admired the successful holding of YICF, and expressed his hopes of further cooperation with Yiwu.
