Zhangjiagang Free Trade Zone located in Jiangsu Province, imported nearly 13,500 tons of flax, worth US $23.277 million, in 2007, accounting for one eighth of the total flax import of China, according to a recently released statistics.

France and Belgium were the key suppliers of flax to this port, which is considered to be the busiest in China.

Recently, flax import at the Zhangjiagang Free Trade Zone has seen a quick rise and it is estimated that it will reach 30,000 tons in 2008. The fibre has become the most important material for the textile industry of China after wool and cotton.

Zhangjiagang Free Trade Zone due to its crucial geographical position has the advantage of storing flax and cotton in its ware-houses in huge quantities.

Experts suggest that to increase the consumption of flax, the local government departments must work out better methods of examination and classification of the imported flax. Proper database of domestic and foreign flax inspection standards is required in order to further protect the legal profit of Chinese import enterprises.
