According to Hebei Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau data presented at a conference ‘Second China Export Wood Products Quality Technology Promotion’ in Bazhou City, Hebei Province, the number of enterprises exporting furniture has increased.
In 2013 there were just 20 furniture manufacturers exporting but that number has grown to 55 this year. The expansion of furniture manufacturing for export is due partly to the recent establishment of a furniture demonstration/production zone in the city.
The value of furniture exports from manufacturers in Bazhou City rose US$2,28 billion between January and August this year, up 47% from last year. Exports are shipped to more than 130 international markets.
