Send a Parcel to Beijing, China
Beijing is one of the most famous cities in the world and one of the most populous with some 20 million people living in its urban area and surrounding region but strangely it is not the most populous in China with that honour going to Shanghai. Its history goes back more than 3,000 years and its prehistoric history can go back beyond Neolithic times. It has always had dynasties, which maintain the political status of the city with the most famous being the Ming dynasty, but there have been many others. The city has had many names but Beijing means Northern Capital, the past British name of Peking came from early settlers who met traders in an area of the city where the local dialect was miss-pronounced by the settlers. The capital today is a bustling city housing some 40 plus of the world’s top 500 companies. There is a strong industrial base but the city has expanded rapidly into the major financial markets. It is also a fascinating tourist city with ancient palaces and temples.
The political scene is stable and has expanded rapidly over the past few years and is a good place to do business. The bureaucratic organisation is sometimes difficult for the European to understand but the Chinese will help all they can. The good UK Parcel carriers are well organised and the cost of delivery from the UK to Beijing is good value. It is important to check the facts prior to arranging deliveries, as the imports must be carried out correctly. The Chinese have systems and they must be worked by the book so make sure the goods are well marked, safe to import and that all the work required to import has been carried out correctly.
Beijing is expanding so fast this is certainly where the commercial world will be in a few years’ time and this is a market that cannot be ignored.
