The Scale of Chinese Government Procurement Will Exceed One Trillion Yuan

Experts Interviewed believed that the scale of government procurement in China this year will exceed 1 trillion Yuan. With the scale of government procurement increasing annually, China should pay more attention to the role played by government procurement in supporting energy conservation, and promoting the development of small and medium-sized enterprises as a policy stimulus, so as to strengthen macro-control on the economic and social development. Meanwhile, the government also needs to strengthen efforts in the chain of custody.

The Scale of Government Procurement May Exceed 1 Trillion

To vigorously promote and expand the categories of government procurement will be an important focal point for some time in the future. The 2012 Key Work Point for Government Procurement, issued by the Ministry of made ??it clear that this year government will focus on expanding the scope and scale of government procurement.

During the last “Eleventh Five-Year “period, the scale of China’s government procurement turned out to be a trend of development and it continues to expand. the Ministry of Finance’s statistics show that the scale of government procurement has increased by 292.8 billion yuan in 2005 to 842.2 billion yuan in 2010, an average annual growth of 23.5% ; during the ” Eleventh Five-Year ” period the cumulative savings amounts to more than 4000 billion yuan of financial funds.

On the first working meeting in May last year, the party members of the Ministry of Finance, Assistant Minister Wang Baoan said that government procurement scope has moved from the traditional class procurement of goods to the procurement of engineering, service categories. Procurement of goods has moved from the general class of goods to a dedicated class extension of the rapid expansion into new service areas of public services, outsourcing, procurement of the service class from the traditional professional services, engineering procurement gradually incorporated into the management scope of government procurement. By adapting to structural adjustment of financial expenditure, procurement activities gradually cover some of expenditure items of more charitable nature and concerning people’s livelihood. The procurement of farm machinery, primary and secondary teaching materials, medical devices and pharmaceuticals, and purchases concerning housing projects, culture development at countryside and other people’s livelihood project have already became the highlights of the procurement scale.

However, Wang Baoan pointed out that, compared with the GPA participants, China’s government procurement still shows disadvantages of small scale and narrow scope. At present the limitation mainly lies in the Procurement of goods and small amount of service procurement. A great deal of purchasing funds is still separated from the regulatory of government procurement, the scale of procurement’s accounts for a fairly low share in GDP.

Su Ming, deputy director of Finance Division, told the reporters that “The scale of government procurement in China last year amounts to about 900 billion Yuan, with a growth rate of about 10% this year, the government procurement will be more than 1 trillion Yuan.” And according to Zhu Lijia, professor of the National School of Administration, the government procurement in the broad sense of the scale may be larger. As the caliber and standard of government procurement statistics are inconsistent with each other, which has not yet get a unified data, but it is estimated that China’s government procurement accounted for 10% of public spending.


Experts Predict There Will Be a 3% Appreciation of the RMB in 2012

Experts Predict There Will Be a 3% Appreciation of the RMB in 2012

Over the recent period since the beginning of 2012, the exchange rate of the RMB against the U.S. dollar rises continuously, topped the 6.3 mark yesterday and increased 179 basis points over three trading days. In his remark addressing this issue, Zhang yimin, PhD in Finance from the China Europe International Business School, said that China carries out a Managed Floating Rate System and would intervene in markets to keep the exchange rate fluctuations under control. And there is a market mechanism decisive to the exchange rate, which is determined by market supply and demand. As there have always been changes in the market, it is very difficult for us to predict the situation by the year-end from the beginning of the year. “For the time being, the appreciation margin of RMB within this year is expected to be 3%, between 6.0-6.1, and it is impossible for the exchange rate to fell under 6.” Said Zhang.

According to Zhang Yimin, this year, problems pestering China’s foreign trade export become more severe. As European economy stuck in a quagmire, and under the influence of the European debt crisis, it is relatively difficult to improve their purchasing power. as U.S.’ signs of economic recovery is still uncertain, the demand for Chinese product is difficult to improve a short period of time. Zhang said this year the scope for the economic surplus is still uncertain; adding to the fact of the expected impact of RMB appreciation, as a result, days of export enterprises will be very tough.

In January of this year, the CPI is expected to make the trend of deposit reserve ratio go toward a complication. Zhang Yimin said that nowadays China deposit reserve rate level is relatively high, which is quite upset. In addition to the high rate of deposit reserves, the central bank has no good way to tackle problems. According to the estimated figures recently published by the Administration of Foreign Exchange, in 2011 China’s foreign exchange reserves increased by $ 380 billion, which means that China will release RMB the equivalent of $ 380 billion US Dollar, which is bound to lead to greater inflation pressure. Zhang Yimin predicts that it is difficult for the deposit reserve ratio to go down.

However, in January the CPI rose by 4.5 percent, scoring a record high in nearly three months. Many scholars believe that this is influenced by New Year and Spring Festival market and “carryover effect”. Zhang Yimin said that the January CPI has been released to a greater extent because our country is still facing greater inflationary pressures, from a qualitative point of view, inflationary pressures has not been eased yet.

Popular payment methods that Chinese suppliers accepted

Popular payment methods that Chinese suppliers accepted

For chinese exporters, the safe, timely, and full payment is the top priority. As it has been mentioned before, foreign trade is a document transaction. As long as all the documents have been handed to the customer, the exporter would regard the goods as being handed to the customer as well. Then, how to get the payment from the customer? Advance payment might be most preferable, but the customers are always hesitant when facing this choice, they may, at best, pay a small amount as the down payment. In most cases, there would be mainly 3 ways to send money to china suppliers:

1. Telegraphic Transfer (T.T)

Telegraphic Transfer is to fax the documents to the customer to prove the goods have already been delivered. And then the customer would make the payment directly through bank by telegraphic to the exporter’s bank account. To carry out the T.T, the exporter needs to open a USD account, and inform customer of the account information in advance. PS: the bank will charge a fee for T/T remittance.

If it is a small-amount remittance, for instance, less than $ 500 USD, regular bank transfer is not worth the fee, even the commission charge will be tens of dollars. For small amounts goods payment or payment for samples, etc. credit card, Moneybookers, Paypal and other online forms of payments. Moneybookers and Paypal are common tools for small foreign exchange payments through e-mail. By signing up for a Moneybookers or Paypal account and entering the customer’s e-mail address and the amounts of fee, you can transfer money into your Moneybookers Paypal accounts. Then you can draw payments from the domestic ATM from the Moneybookers’ account or keep the payment to the Paypal account or transfer them to your other bankaccounts.

2. Document against Payment(DP)

The exporter would hand the full set of documents to the bank and commission the bank to retrieve money from the customer. Please be noted that the only thing the bank do is to help exporters transmit documents to the customers. And if the customer refuses to pay, the documents would be sent back to the exporter without any guarantee for the payment been actually made. That is to say, even if the documents are full and complete, the exporter would bear the risks of customers’ not paying, and then they would have to sell the products at low prices or simply ship them back.

3. Letter of Credit(LC)

The letter of credit is a written document both parties entrusted the bank to make to promise payment. It is conditional and indicates the trading of goods, quantity, quality, delivery time, and the corresponding provisions of the type of documents required and production requirements. Exporters would stock up according to the letter of credit, and then complete and collect the full set of documents, and deliver to the bank within the prescribed time limit. And when Bank checked the account, the payment would be made immediately. The operating costs for T / T and T / P are fairly less. But the common defect of the both means is that the exporter has to take the risk of the customers’ sudden change of heart and refuse to receive the goods. On the other hand, although the exporters have a tight grip on the property right, sometimes they also have to ship back the goods and sell it at a lower price in the foreign destination. And sometimes customers would also ask for a cut in price, all these would lead to an ugly result, that is: the loss. And the letter of credit L/C has, in theory, would well protect the interests of both parties. As for the exporters, with the credit guarantee from the bank, they can get the payment as long as they deliver the goods in accordance with the requirement. Therefore, although the letter of credit would cost a relatively higher commission fee, it is the most commonly used means of international payment, which would step back to a secondary place only after the two parties get along well with each other and accept one another’s commercial credit.

On the other hand, the letter of credit poses the highest requirement on the documents. The article of the letter of credit has a strict requirement on the standard of the documents, even the expression on the documents is detailed. The letter of credit should only be accepted as long as the whole set of documents met with the letter of credit. Any mistake, even if it is misspelled words and wrong punctuation, would theoretically be regarded as “discrepancy”. when Discrepancy occurs, the customer has the right to refuse to fulfill the letter of credit. Even if customers do not mind the discrepancies and are willing to pay, the bank will still fine for each discrepancy and the common amount of fine is $ 50 or more. Therefore, to some extend, even one mark of punctuation in the letter of credit may well worth $ 50, which poses a high demand for the precision of the documents. Besides, the letter of credit is highly professional. Anyone who is not familiar with the knowledge of foreign trade and letters of credit would find it difficult to understand the meaning of its provisions. And some unscrupulous traders take advantage of this by deliberately setting up traps in document terms or finding fault on purpose so as to come up with discrepancies, then threatening with the fait accompli of the goods having been delivered at the foreign dock, so as to lower the price of the goods. Therefore, the letter of credit sometimes can be a double-edge sword. Used nicely, it can guarantee payment and thusly the risks could be avoided and the payment could be collected without a hitch.

China’s Pharmaceutical Exports Substantially Reduced as EU Raised the Threshold for Drug Importation

China’s Pharmaceutical Exports Substantially Reduced as EU Raised the Threshold for Drug Importation

On February 8, 2012, Tan Shengcai, the Director of the West Drug Division of the CHINA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE OF MEDICINES & HEALTH PRODUCTS IMPORTERS & EXPORTERS, said that the EU’s new directive is still in the comment period, and the directive will greatly affect the Pharmaceutical trade between China and Europe.

On June 28, 2011, the European Parliament and Council has passed the Directive 2011/62/EU and amended the Directive 2001/83/EC, which is the Community Code of the Human Medicinal Products. It has always been regarded as “The EU Basic Law of the Medical Product” and has been amended for altogether 8 times, and the standard has been constantly improved. Meanwhile, it has also raised the threshold for imported drugs.

However, this time the amendment aims at putting restrictions on all drugs sold in the EU. 2011/62/EU believes that, “within the European Union it has been found that the medicines counterfeiters are experiencing an alarming increase, which seriously threats the public health. Therefore, this phenomenon should be eliminated through affirmation of the production of medicine.”

Under the name of “crack down on counterfeit goods”, the European Union requires that all medicines exported to EU need to be issued by the regulatory authorities of the exporting country with a written statement, in order to prove their compliance with EU GMP standards.

“It is almost impossible, how could China’s pharmaceutical issue such a statement? In the past, the enterprises that meet the GMP standards in China can export to Europe their products. but now the new amendments has blocked their way of export. “said Tan Shengcai, “Therefore, unless the Company adopted the EU GMP certification, it is not even possible for them to go on the exportation. ”

Medicare Chamber of Commerce data show that from January to November 2011, China’s medicine products exports to Europe Western was $ 6,000,000,000 , accounting for 53.6 percent of total medicine exports in the same period, among which pharmaceutical raw materials accounted for 50% of the export of western medicine. A large number of small and medium enterprises are making export through bulk drugs and intermediates to make a profit in international trade.

Although the Health Insurance Association is still put up a protest, Tan Shengcai said helplessly: “It can be seen from the results of the last year that it would be very difficult for us to modify the instruction by reported opinions”

On April 30, 2011, the EU DIRECTIVE ON TRADITIONAL HERBAL REGISTRATION PROGRAM become due without even one Chinese Patent Drug Enterprise registered, which declares the defeat of China’s traditional medicine on the EU market. Medicare Chamber of Commerce has been, on many occasions organizations lobbying, negotiating, and urging the government to consultations, but all that did not alter the fate that Europe has closed the door to the Chinese Patent Drug Enterprise.

This time it is the turn for chemical drugs and pharmaceutical raw materials, but for businesses that have already passed the EU GMP certification. The new directive does not generate so great an impact on them.

On February 8, enterprises that have gone through the GMP Certification such as the Qianhong Bio-pharma Co.,ltd, Simcere admitted that the export business have not yet been subject to the impact of new EU regulations. According to Xiang Yumei, who is in charge of Simcere’s EU GMP project, said that “We are concerned that the amendment in June last year may increase the import and export procedures— but there would not be significant obstacles. ”

However, for a large number of SMEs, the new instruction is nothing more than a death sentence. By the end of 2010, altogether 4666 Chinese Pharmaceutical Export Enterprises had yielded over 1 million dollars in the export turnover, among which, however, few has got the EU GMP certification. A large number of enterprises are still racking their brains, worrying about the improvement expenses of China ‘s new GMP.

Clothing Quality Inspection Standard (AQL)

1. General Overview of AQL Inspection

AQL, the abbreviation of the acceptable quality level, is a parameter rather than an inspection standard. The Inspection of goods shall be in accordance with the bulk range, the inspection level, and the AQL to determine the number of samplings and the ratio of qualified and inferior goods. The quality inspection adopts a one-time sampling program, and,

The AQL is 2.5,

The Level of Inspection: Normal

Stringency for the Inspection: Normal

And the sampling plan is shown in the Table below:

One-time sampling program for normal inspection: (AQL-2.5 and AQL-4.0)



2. Clothing Inspection Items

1). Inspection of the Size and Shape—Table of Size and Shape

(1) Key sizes and spots— collar length (plain weave), collar width (knitting), collar spread (knitting) circumference, sleeve openings (long sleeve), sleeve length (to the sleeve edge), back length (plain weave),  center measurement(knitting)/measurement of the shoulder top, pants, waist, and hip measurements, Front rise, Back rise, Zipper closure, leg opening, The inner center back length(ingle pieces / set), vertical samples, and the size of the clothing and pants.

(2).Non-critical sizes and spots — for example, the high point of shoulder, chest circumference, collar width, sleeve sheet, front rise and back rise, waist circumference , low hip , pocket position, openings.

2). Defect Checking: identify and classify the appearance, shape, dressing, and defects found in all the clothing.

See Also Annex 1 — Content of the Defects

3. Grading Standard

AQL is the total amount of the defected clothes within 100 pieces of clothes. After the sampling, if the AQL reaches the acceptance number Ac (piece), the average level of processing this batch would be regarded as satisfactory. And if the rejection number Re(piece) is reached, the average processing level would instead be rendered unsatisfactory. And the grading would be determined according to the standard as follows:

1). Normal Defects— Judging from the order specifications and quality standards, when products failed to meet the performance standard and the appearance as well as quality was affected. The normal defects at the non-critical spots can be fixed through repairing. And the garment factory repairing the defects would do a 100% recheck. And the checker can make specifications to color, size, and so on. And three normal defects can be seen as a critical one.

2). Critical defects are those that affect the shape and appearance of the clothing, which drive the consumers away from purchasing; or render the cloth uncomfortable for wearing, in which case the consumer would return the clothes. Critical defects are those damages, stains, colored strips and tears at the key spots. And even one critical defect would cause the whole batch of clothes to be determined as unqualified or unacceptable.

Ways of Fumigation

Disinfection methods: fumigation with methyl bromide -MB, Heat Treatment-HT; (by using chemical agents < such as methyl bromide> to fumigate wood packaging, although the long-horned beetle, the dissemination medium of pine wood nematode, could be killed, the pine wood nematode itself could not be completed rid of. While Heat Treatment could kill long-horned beetle and the pine wood nematode both at the same time.

Fumigation is to kill the insects in the woods with chemical agent, while the heat treatment is to do so through high temperature and humidity. Besides, the heat treatment can also reduce the moisture content of wood, which fumigation is not capable of. Therefore, many world-renowned international companies (MOTO) has clearly stated that fumigation is not allowed.

Why Fumigation Is Necessary

In international trade, in order to protect the domestic resources, countries will implement compulsory quarantine procedures on all the imported products. And the fumigation of the wood packaging is a mandatory measure taken to prevent the pests from damaging the forest resources of the importing country. Therefore, exports of goods containing wood packaging must be fumigated before the shipment. therefore, it is an effective way of Disinfection.
