Imported goods in China take over public eye | China International Import

Imported goods in China set to take over public eye Oct. 11 – Consumers stand to benefit from more imported goods during this year’s Nov 11 shopping gala as merchants across the globe try to ride the import boom fueled by the China International Import Expo. At least 500 additional new foreign products will be available to Chinese Consumers, according to Tmall Global, the dedicated cross-border e-commerce arm of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.

The company aims to develop around 30 small and medium-sized overseas brands through content marketing endeavors and help them achieve $10 million daily sales during the 24-hour shopping festival, said Liu Peng, Tmall Global’s general manager overseeing imports and exports. Liu said the company plans to fully leverage the influence of the CIIE, which runs from Nov 5 to 10 in Shanghai, to introduce new brands to customers and help them better capture the Chinese market through customer insight analytics.

For Alibaba, part of the tie-up with the official agenda includes co-hosting the Global Cross-Border Import and Supply Chain Leaders Summit during the CIIE, which is “in response to the major policy decision on a new round of opening up at a higher level”, the company said.

Rory Macleod, managing director and CEO of Australia’s Freedom Foods Group, said his company is eagerly anticipating both the import fair and the Nov 11 promotion. He said that cross-border commerce reflects market changes, and is an opportunity to see how China is adapting to this trend. “The government fair… is a lot broader and a lot more strategic … whereas Nov 11 is the epitome of what that’s all about,” he said.

For Tmall Global, the upcoming Nov 11 will feature the rollout of global wish lists and sought-after items, resonating with buyers who are seeking to diversify their sources of purchases in pursuit of a higher quality of life, Liu said. The company also inked deals with five leading international brands, including Unilever, Nestle and Pfizer, to partner on product innovation and premier launches. “Every time I come here, there’s something new to participate in and to learn about,” said Amy Paulose, general manager of US nuts brand Emily’s. “The Tmall team has been so great and supporting us … (to identify) the right activities for each brand.”

Chinese consumers’ growing appetite for imported goods is helping Japanese beauty device specialist Refa reap huge financial gains, according to its managing director Keizo Nakajima. “Sales in China jumped eight times after we made our debut in China via Tmall Global three years ago. Such outstanding performance has in part assisted our successful initial public offering in Japan,” he said.

Miljardenomzet voor Nederlandse merken op China Alibaba

Miljardenomzet voor Nederlandse merken op China AlibabaOkt. 9 – Meer dan honderd Nederlandse retailers en merken hebben inmiddels een eigen winkel op Tmall of Tmall Global. In totaal waren merken uit ons land het afgelopen boekjaar van Alibaba goed voor omgerekend 1,25 miljard euro omzet via die platforms. Dat zegt managing director Roland Palmer van Alibaba Benelux.

Nederlandse spelers boekten vorig boekjaar 35 procent omzetgroei via Alibaba ten opzichte van een jaar daarvoor. Via de ruim honderd eigen shops boekten zij omgerekend zo’n 350 miljoen euro omzet, de rest komt via andere onlinewinkels op Alibaba. Dat toont volgens Palmer aan dat Nederlandse merken in trek zijn. “Verkopers uit de rest van de wereld benaderen graag Nederlandse fabrikanten om hun producten in China te verkopen.”

Veel Nederlandse winkelketens staan op het punt van start te gaan op Tmall, zegt Palmer. Hunkemöller is recent al begonnen. Alibaba heeft volgens de topman geen streefdoel voor het aantal Nederlandse partners, omdat het belangrijker is dat het succesvolle winkels zijn. “Als we iedereen hadden toegelaten, hadden we nu al vijfhonderd winkels gehad.”

Alibaba heeft de komende drie tot vijf jaar geen plannen om de Europese markt op te gaan, zegt Palmer verder. De e-commercereus richt zich voorlopig op China, India en Zuidoost-Azië. Daarna sluit hij niets uit, omdat Alibaba in 2036 wereldwijd twee miljard klanten wil hebben, waarvoor waarschijnlijk ook Europa nodig is.

Voor webwinkel AliExpress staat Nederland in de top zeven markten wereldwijd, laat Palmer verder weten. “We zijn in Nederland al vrij groot zonder er iets voor te doen”, aldus de directeur. Plannen om AliExpress actiever te promoten, zijn er niet. “Nederland is een vrij kleine markt en daarom geen focusland.”

Chinees TCL kijkt naar overname ASM Pacific

Chinees TCL kijkt naar overname ASM PacificOkt. 9 – De Chinese bedrijf elektronicagigant TCL heeft voorlopige gesprekken gevoerd met het Nederlandse chipbedrijf ASM International (ASMI) over een overname van diens belang in ASM Pacific Technologies (ASMPT).

Persbureau Bloomberg stelde eerder dat TCL zou overwegen om een bod van 1 miljard dollar uit te brengen op het belang van ASMI in ASMPT. ASMI liet al weten momenteel niet bezig te zijn met een eventuele verkoop van zijn belang. ASMI heeft nog een deelneming van 25 procent en staat al enige tijd onder druk van activistische beleggers om zijn volledige belang in zijn Aziatische tak af te stoten.

Ook sprak TCL met ASMPT, maar er werd geen overeenkomst gesloten omdat het bedrijf naar een groot aantal bedrijven in de sector kijkt voor samenwerking. Dat meldde de onderneming maandag in een document bij de Shenzhen Stock Market. TCL is genoteerd in Shenzhen en ASMPT heeft een notering in Hongkong.

Chinese eigenaar verzekeraar Vivat onderzoekt verkoop

Chinese eigenaar van Vivat onderzoekt verkoopOkt. 9 – Chinese eigenaar van Vivat onderzoekt verkoop. Een verkoop van verzekeraar Vivat, met merken als Reaal, Actiam en Zwitserleven, is dichterbij gekomen. De Chinese eigenaar Anbang onderzoekt deze optie. Anbang spreekt maandag van een “volgende fase in de strategische heroriëntatie”. Het verkopen van een meerderheids-belang in de verzekeraar is een van de opties.

Vivat benadrukt in een verklaring dat het onderzoek zich niet beperkt tot louter de verkoop van een meerderheids-belang. Ook kunnen de Chinezen besluiten om vast te houden aan het belang. Marktkenners zien onder anderen de Nederlandse verzekeraars ASR en Aegon als potentiële kopers.

Over de verkoop wordt reeds lang gespeculeerd. ASR heeft eerder zelfs bevestigd zakenbankiers van ABN Amro en Goldman Sachs te hebben ingehuurd in het gevecht om de vijfde verzekeraar van Nederland. Aegon heeft zakenbank Morgan Stanley in de hand genomen.

Update – Anbang: behoud Nederlandse verzekeraar blijft mogelijk – ’Vivat wil goede prijs’. Verzekeraar Vivat heeft namens zijn Chinese aandeelhouder Anbang een signaal afgegeven dat het geen uitgemaakte zaak is dat het bedrijf verkocht wordt. Dat is een hint aan de geïnteresseerde kopers als ASR en Aegon dat ze niet moeten denken dat de bruid goedkoop is.

With the rapid increase of labor and land costs in China, domestic slaughtering and processing enterprises chose imported pork to cheapen the cost of their raw material. Therefore, China’s pork import volume is directly proportional to the gap between China’s pig carcass price and imported pork CIF price. According to a related China report indicates that in terms of the market share of pork exporters to China, Spain exported, in total, 237,514 tons of pork to China in 2017, ranking top among all exporting countries.

Yum China heeft geen Trek in Miljardenbod

Yum China Heeft Geen Trek In MiljardenbodDe grootste uitbater van fastfoodrestaurants in China, Yum China, heeft naar verluidt een overnamebod van 17 miljard dollar afgewezen. Een groep investeerders aast volgens ingewijden al langer op de exploitant van Chinese vestigingen van ketens als Pizza Hut en KFC maar vindt tot dusver nul op zijn rekest.

De groep overnamepartijen zou bestaan uit investeerders Hillhouse, KKR en DCP Capital en een fonds van de Chinese overheid. Het consortium blijft ondanks het afgeketste bod wel in gesprek met Yum China. De investeerders willen het fastfoodbedrijf naar verluidt van de beurs in New York halen, om het later naar de beurs in Hong Kong te brengen.

Yum China werd twee jaar geleden afgesplitst van Yum Brands. Vestigingen van KFC en Pizza Hut kampen de laatste jaren met afzwakkende verkoop in China, onder andere als gevolg van veranderende eetgewoonten onder jongeren.

Voor het hele jaar houden de Fransen rekening met verdere groei van de omzet, ondanks de toenemende geopolitieke spanningen.
