Electronic goods trade between Zhuhai and Macau rocketed in H1


In the first half of this year, a total of 138,300 of electronic goods were being traded at the Cross Border Industrial Zone between Zhuhai and Macau, amounting to RMB23.36 million (MOP27.71 million/US$3.45 million), according to data released by Zhuhai Entry-Exit Inspection & Quarantine Bureau (ZEEIQ).
The number of products and the amount that generated both registered a substantial increase of 1,321 per cent and 2,036 per cent year-on-year.
In order to shorten the time for inspection, the Chinese Bureau rolled out ‘5+1 working days’ in order to allow instant services to firms as well as the simplification of inspection procedures.
Firms, consumers and supervisory authorities can use WeChat to scan QR codes on parcels to obtain information about the products and also prevent counterfeit products. In addition, e-commerce platforms can be used to purchase sample products online and sent to a third party for inspection in order to ensure the quality of the products.
