Since 2005, import growth has reached an incredible growth of 30% per year according to Mr. YU Zhongyong, International Business Manager of Longwu Fruit and Vegetable Trading Market. There is little doubt that a part of the trade – Shangainese professionals do not hesitate to say “most of the trade” – will then be moved from Hong Kong and Guangzhou to Shanghai in the next years.
