South Africa adopts trade protection measures Chinese service enterprises are affected

According to the "African Times" report, due to the low prices and variety of Chinese commodities, many Chinese in South Africa are engaged in trade-related industries, including import and export, customs clearance, shipping, wholesale, retail, etc. Chinese people who do less business in other businesses have also started to do business. With the increasing number of Chinese in South Africa and the constant influx of Chinese goods, South African consumers are no strangers to “MadeinChina”. While the popularity and price of Chinese products brings about market benefits for Chinese businessmen, they also endure certain Negative impact.

Ms. Liu, a Chinese businessman, recently wanted to open a shop in a famous shopping mall in Joburg to sell women's fashion products. After submitting her application to the mall management department, Ms. Liu was asked to provide a detailed business plan to introduce the source and price of the products in the shop. Origin mark, etc. The management pointed out that this is to ensure the overall operating level of the shopping malls, that is, to provide consumers with high-quality, high-grade goods, and to protect the interests of other businesses. In other words, Ms. Liu's products must be able to meet the mall's own positioning standards.

Another Chinese man, Mr. Zhang, wanted to open a clothing store in a small shopping center. The shopping center had only a dozen shops but the popularity was high. Due to the large number of residents in the surrounding area, buses are coming and going every day, so the rent is not cheap. It costs 15,000 rand per month. The shopping center used to have only one big and one small clothing store. Some of the other stores sell cakes, some sell alcohol and tobacco, some operate hairdressing business, and large chain retailers such as Woolworth and Pick'n Pay. Mr. Zhang thinks that his application should have no problem but was rejected by the management. The reason is that malls need to maintain the diversity of business types. The management believes that due to limited space, it is only possible to accommodate as many business projects as possible to provide convenience to nearby residents. This is a win-win choice for shopping malls, businesses and consumers. Finally, Mr. Zhang’s fancy store was acquired by a business owner operating sunglasses.

In fact, many large-scale shopping malls in South Africa will adopt similar forms of protectionism. For example, when a certain number of businesses have operated a certain type of goods, they will no longer accept similar merchants in shopping malls. Some shopping malls simply do not accept Chinese applications in order to prevent cheap goods from pulling down the overall price and harming the interests of other businesses. Although many Chinese are dissatisfied with such regulations, they also admit that there is some truth in the position of mall management.

Many South African Internet users are talking about cheap imported products (especially Chinese-made clothing and textiles). Some people think that cheap imported clothing is a good news for low-income people. “If I can buy a dress for 80 rand, why should I have to throw 200 rand to buy homemade goods?” Some netizens said that Chinese workers Jobs are willing to endure hardship without compensation, while the treatment of South African workers is protected by the government and the union’s minimum wage standard, and the product cost is naturally higher. Opposition waves mainly come from garment industry practitioners. One netizen said that his father worked in the garment industry for more than 40 years and now he has no jobs.

It can be said that the fundamental social issues in South Africa, such as unemployment, cannot be resolved, and the government is bound to issue a series of relevant measures to deal with it. Under the trend of globalization, protectionism has been widely condemned for its short-sightedness, but it is also a good idea for life-saving in a country's economic downturn. Earlier this year, when ministers of South African government departments met in Cape Town, they urged the South African International Trade Executive Committee to step up protectionist measures in the form of targeted tariff increases to protect some vulnerable and vulnerable industries from surging imports. The wave was established. Only hope that similar measures once implemented, the vast number of Chinese businessmen can take precautions, business Shanghai sinking, still invincible.
