Import Trade Center
With the support of Meishian and Ningbo Governments, we work with Small- and medium-sized business (SMEs) exporters using our on-line trading platform and Import Trade Center facility located in Meishan Island Ningbo China. The Import Trade Center – the only Center of its kind in China – is dedicated to introducing “Africa made” goods and services to China. The 18,000 sq. ft. showroom and office accommodations and on-line platform are permanently located in Zhejiang Province, one of the wealthiest areas in China.
Lower cost to market
The Import Center located at Meishan Ningbo Port - a major Bonded Port (Free Trade Zone with preferential policies at the highest and most advanced level in China) offers many concessions for Africa based businesses that lowers your cost to market and allows products to be sold at competitive prices in China.
The preferential policies alone can help cut cost by 5%-30%.
Our Marketing Sample and Test Program save you money, time and resources. The Marketing Test Program requires - no inventory – no human resources – no travel – no cost for trade shows – no learning a new language – and no looking for buyers. The cost to export is minimum. With our Sample Test-Marketing pProgram, you can test the market – and land orders - before you spend or ship inventory.
Concessions and Tax Breaks
