Yiwu, September 9 (Zhongxin Net) -- "The start time of the competition is getting closer and closer, and I want to seize the last opportunity to step up the purchase of a batch of sporting goods and send them back to China. On September 12, Feilong, a businessman from Uzbekistan, said while stepping into the gate of the third district of Zhejiang Yiwu International Trade City.

The 19th Asian Games in Hangzhou (hereinafter referred to as the Hangzhou Asian Games) will open on September 9.

The third district of Yiwu International Trade City has gathered nearly 700 shops selling sporting goods, covering football, volleyball, table tennis rackets, boxing gloves, trophies and other sports sporting goods and related derivative products. This time, Wyvern had no intention of wandering, but "went straight to the point" and came to a store specializing in the sale of jerseys. The owner Wen Congjian received him warmly.

"How much does this jersey cost? Are there any matching pants? "Can we print the names of our country and cities?" "I'm going to order 10,000 pieces, are they in stock now?" Entering the store, Wyvern quickly threw out a series of questions. While talking with the boss, Wyvern also felt the material and comfort of the jersey with his hands from time to time.

Wen Congjian has been engaged in the sporting goods industry for 16 years. With the Hangzhou Asian Games approaching, Wen Congjian obviously felt that the business was getting better and better, and many foreign businessmen like Feilong came to buy, they often asked whether there was any stock, and did not hesitate to use relatively expensive transportation methods such as air transportation, and sent back to their home countries in the shortest time.

It is reported that Wen Congjian's usual orders are mainly in Europe and the United States. Orders in Asia and China have grown rapidly recently, with a recent increase of about three times. "At present, our inventory goods are basically ordered, and we will continue to adjust production according to the needs of customers and the promotion of the schedule, and go all out to meet the needs of customers at home and abroad." He said.

According to data from Yiwu Customs under Hangzhou Customs, in the first seven months of this year, Yiwu sports goods exports were 7.42 billion yuan (RMB, the same below), a year-on-year increase of 1.24%; Exports of sporting goods to Asian countries reached 6.14 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 2.12%.
