118th Canton Fair is coming to the end, there are many foreigners grasping the limited sourcing time to shuttle back and forth in Canton Fair Complex with the hope of seeking business opportunities. Mr. Md. Amin Sharif is one of them.
Q: where are you from and what’s your business?
A: I’m from Dhaka, in Bangladesh, and our company is engaged in importing surgical instrument, medical equipment and veterinary instrument.
Q: What do you mainly purchase this time in Canton Fair and how many years have you been sourcing in China?
A: This is the second year and the fourth time being in Canton Fair. This time I come here mainly for medical equipment, such as wheel chair, stethoscope, BP digital, crutch and nebulizer, etc.
Q: Have you found the ideal supplier until now and how many years business have you done with China suppliers?
A: Yes. I’ve found several good suppliers and have placed orders with them, but they are only small ones. Before I came to Canton Fair, I have started business with China suppliers. I have kept a long business relationship with a China supplier for more than 18 years, who is quite trustworthy and honest by providing us the products with good quality and competitive price.
Q: Compared with other Asia Markets such as India and Vietnam, in your opinion, what advantages and disadvantages does china have?
A: I think they all have their advantages, but I only purchase in China. Because though the price in India and Vietnam is cheaper than in China, the quality of China products is better than other Asian markets such as India and Vietnam.
Q: How do you think of Canton Fair, are you satisfied with it?
A: it’s big and good. The medical equipment in Canton Fair is in full categories and can satisfy our demand, but the traffic in China is so heavy.
Q: Have you done business though e-commerce platform?
A: I know on-line business and we have tried it, but it isn’t mature, because I think it isn’t safe enough.
Q: Many buyers complain that the business becomes tougher than before? Is your business affected?
A: Yes. The worldwide business situation is enduring the stiff period, but it depends on the industries. Honestly speaking, our business is rarely affected, because we are doing medical equipment business. People have to see doctors when they are ill and the beauty lovers are always willing to invest though they aren’t very rich.
