1. Dubai turmoil in Shaoxing Textile Export markets. In Financial More than a year after the tsunami, people thought that the crisis has passed. However, the Dubai debt crisis atmosphere of the global financial market downturn, raising fears that a new round of financial crisis struck. Dubai on November 26, 2009 announced restructuring of its largest business entity of Dubai World, Dubai World and the debt moratorium for 6 months. After the news came out, not only revive the momentum of the global economic crisis weakened, but also the Middle East as the main export market, textile enterprises in Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province has been the industry began to re-examine the metaphor of the “golden channel” of the “New Silk Road.” China Textile City in Shaoxing, from Dubai and the Middle East buyers more.

Shaoxing County officials said the bureau of foreign trade, the debt crisis may result in Shaoxing textile export volume reduced recently, and Shaoxing, the direct impact on the UAE this year, export growth target. “Dubai crisis” caused by the outbreak of the textile industry in China is indeed a certain shocks, particularly textile and garment enterprises in Shaoxing. But the debt crisis of the whirlpool – Dubai World company mainly involved in transport logistics, shipping docks, urban development, investment and financial services investment in the long term point of view, Shaoxing’s textile and garment exports in general have limited impact. These areas of investment and direct business contact Shaoxing textile is not very close, so, although the short term or on Shaoxing’s textile exports to the Middle East will be some impact, but long-term implications of the crisis may also further attention. Dubai, after all, only in the Middle East transit point for trade in textile export enterprises face is behind the broader Middle East, Africa. Dubai While “crisis” being, but the world economy is gradually recovering, visionary textile enterprises should avoid short-term speculation to long-term investment philosophy to invest in Dubai, after all inventive move.

According to statistics, compared with a loss of Wenzhou shoe enterprises increased by 138% over the same period last year, dollar-denominated export growth rate of just 0.3%, if the calculation of export delivery value of the yuan business volume is actually a negative growth!

An increase in the number of cases reported little damage cases, the reported surge in the amount of damage, which indicates that in 2008 a quarter of U.S. buyers Chuxian single cases reported a higher loss rates, risk is more concentrated.

In fact, Wenzhou is not the case, the Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta and other risks faced by foreign trade enterprises are increasing.

International Trade and Import & Export

If you happen walk into a store in London and are able to buy a Banarasi Sari (a Traditional Indian women dress) then you are experiencing the effects of International Trade.

For any Nation that is considered to be a world power, International Trade is an important source of economic revenue and may even have a significant share of gross domestic product (GDP). International Trade has been taking place between countries since medieval times through trade routes like Silk Route etc. In today’s modern times due to industrialization the face of International trade has changed through MNC’s, outsourcing and globalization.

In simple words the exchange of certain specific technologies, capital, goods and services (in bulk) between nations as per their requirements is International Trade. It opens up a sea of opportunities for the nations. International trade allows nations to expand their markets for both goods and services that otherwise may not have been available in other countries. Import and Export is the basic method by which the International Trade occurs. Nature has not endowed everyone with everything, some nations have something and some others have the other things. So in this context it becomes all the more important for trade to take place between the nations. Importing means getting something you need from other nation and exporting means giving other countries what they need from you. A great way to expand your business internationally is by importing and exporting goods. Companies taking part in international business have been known to grow faster and fail lesser.

International trade gives rise to a world economy where supply and demand or prices of the goods and services are affected by global events. Political change in India, for example, might result in an increase in the cost of labor and raw materials, thereby increasing the manufacturing costs for an American Garment manufacturing company based in India, which would then result in an increase in the price in the American Market. This type of trade brings not only increases the efficiency but also increases the opportunity of Foreign Direct Investment in the country. It also helps the countries embark the path of specialization and therefore make more efficient use of resources, international trade has potential to maximize a country’s capacity to produce and acquire goods for example India is world known for IT services, Japan for it’s Technological know-how, China for bulk and cheap manufacturing etc.

Global Trade also gives consumers and countries the opportunity to be introduced to goods and services not available in their own countries. If companies are ready for international trade, the government in each country offers a number of programs to help them get started. There are very strict regulations on import and export business so it is critical that firms understand which of these regulations apply to them and the implications. They also have to abide by the trade agreements regarding the goods between the two nations.

Export Factoring – Learn How to Finance your International Sales with Factoring

Selling your goods internationally can be extremely rewarding and challenging at the same time. When you start exporting goods, you truly open your company to a world of possibilities, including the possibility of big financial rewards. At the same time, you expose yourself to some of the challenges of international commerce.

Many international transactions are settled using bank or corporate letters of credit, which means you can rest assured that you will be paid on time. However, many of your clients will insist that you give them payment terms. This means you may need to wait 30, 60 or even 90 days before you get paid. And if your company is growing, waiting to get paid can be very tough.

Going to the bank for a business loan may or may not work. Most banks only give business loans to businesses that have a great past history. But this is of little use to businesses that have a short history but a bright future.

A better option is to consider factoring your invoices, which eliminates the 30 day wait that it takes to get paid. Export factoring (or international factoring as it is also known) can be a very useful tool for new and growing businesses.

Factoring is a form of financing, where a factoring company advances you a substantial portion on your invoices. The factoring company waits to get paid, while you get immediate use of the funds. This eliminates the cash flow issues that happen when you extend terms.

Export factoring is a factoring specialty. Actually, very few factoring companies offer international export factoring, so when talking to companies be sure to be specific and ask if they offer this type of factoring.

Many factoring companies also offer purchase order financing. This factoring product extension provides you with financing to fulfill purchase orders. Purchase order financing gives you the necessary funding to pay your suppliers, using the purchase order as collateral.

If your company is growing and selling goods offshore, be sure to look into factoring and purchase order funding as valuable financing tools to help you grow.
