Trade barriers unable to rein Guangdong shoe exports
Jan '08
Guangdong Province exported 280 million pairs of shoes to EU in the period from January to October 2007. The total export value was US $1.02 billion, demonstrated a growth by 27.4 and 17.5 percent in terms of volume and value, respectively. The average export price in this period was quoted at $3.6 for each pair.

According to the analysis of China customs, in these 10 months, EU remained the third biggest footwear export market for Guangdong Province. The region shipped 150 million pairs of footwear to this market by the mode of general trade, up by 44 percent, accounting for 51.5 percent of the total export to EU.

The private enterprises exported around 120 million pairs of shoes, up by 46.3 percent, accounting for 41.3 percent, for the foreign-funded corporations export touched a volume of 85.57 million, boost of 14.8 percent, accounting for 30.3 percent. The state-owned firms shipped about 56.39 million pairs, rose by 8.8 percent, representing 20 percent of the total exports to EU.

However, industry insiders reflected that trade of Guangdong Province could have reached newer heights but trade barriers like anti-dumping investigation in EU has made the export environment unhealthy. Secondly, profits are decreasing due to lowering of export rebate, RMB appreciation, rise in labour as well as raw material cost.
