Fujian has the largest export volume of rubber shoes and plastic shoes

a few days ago, we learned from Fuzhou Customs that in the first two months of this year, Fujian Province exported US $890 million of shoes, up 1.2% year on year (the same below). Among them, rubber shoes and plastic shoes are the largest export varieties; The export of general trade kept increasing while the export of processing trade decreased; The exports of small and medium-sized private enterprises accounted for half of the total exports in the same period

it is understood that under the influence of the deepening of the international financial crisis, international trade protectionism is becoming more and more intense. As a labor-intensive footwear product, it has become a serious disaster area of trade friction. Since the end of last year, Brazil, Canada and Argentina have filed anti-dumping or countervailing cases against China’s export shoes. Statistics show that in the first two months of this year, Fujian Province exported $10.554 million to Brazil, $27.545 million to Canada and $7.95a million to Argentina. The total export of the three places accounted for 5.2% of the total export of shoes in Fujian Province in the same period. Although the proportion is not large, it is easy to produce demonstration effect and trigger the follow-up of other countries or regions. Most of the enterprises involved in this case are small and medium-sized footwear enterprises, and they lack the ability to resist risks and experience in solving trade frictions, so they are vulnerable to greater impact< The experts suggest that the relevant government departments should pay close attention to the trade protection trends adopted by foreign countries for China's footwear products, establish smooth information release channels, and help enterprises improve the predictability of business decision-making and market adaptability; We should give full play to the role of chambers of Commerce and trade associations in coordinating enterprises' foreign behavior and strengthening industry self-discipline, guide enterprises to unite to deal with foreign trade protection measures and safeguard their legitimate rights and interests; Guide enterprises to change the traditional distribution mode, improve the technical level and environmental quality of products, actively explore their own brand development path, improve the core competitiveness and added value of products, and reduce trade friction from the source
