British merchant Taishan (2nd, L) serves customers in his own western restaurant in Yiwu, east China's Zhejiang Province, Nov. 28, 2019. In 2005, Nigel Cropp, a British man, came to Yiwu small commodity market in east China's Zhejiang Province to teach merchants English here. He took "Taishan" as his Chinese name because he always gives people the impression of being "as stable as Mount Taishan". In 2008, Taishan married his student Wu Qinyan. In that year, Taishan put the marketing knowledge he had learned in university into practice and founded his own import and export company. With Yiwu, the "world's leading small commodity market", as platform, Taishan's business got more and more prosperous. In 2012, Taishan opened a western restaurant, taking advantage of the gathered foreign merchants in Yiwu. Since November in 2014, the China-Europe freight train service originating from Yiwu had opened 11 routes that provides a new channel for Taishan's import and export business. From Christmas decoration to household articles, Taishan has exported many "Made in China" products to European and American countries and regions. "The 'Made in China' products are of high quality and low price, and are still gaining larger market as the quality is constantly improving." said Taishan. The continuous improvement of the business environment has attracted many foreign merchants like Taishan to start business in Yiwu. At present, Yiwu has more than 1.8 million kinds of commodities exported to 219 countries and regions in the world. Around 15,000 foreign traders from more than 100 countries and regions are stationed in Yiwu, and about more than 400,000 foreigners come to the city to do business every year. (Xinhua/Tan Jin)
