People's Daily Online's Exclusive: Made in China' Revisited

Looking ahead, one of the challenges China's new leadership will face is guiding the country's export-reliant economy through global headwinds. Much of China’s extraordinary growth over the past 30 years has been thanks to its manufacturing might.

But times are changing. Our reporter Michelle Xing recently travelled to the city of Yiwu, in Zhejiang Province - better known as the world's factory. She discovered a shift in what it means to be Made in China.

If you want to feel the actual pulse of China’s exports, there is no better place to go than the export and production hub of Yiwu. The city’s world trade exhibition center counts 70,000 stores which sell everything from toys, accessories to tools and home decor. So how do these products find their way to your local whole sellers around the world? We talked to export company manager Gurnani who helps foreign buyers navigate the small commodity capital of the world.
