Logistics companies、E-commerce companies、Financing guarantee companies and Channel brand enterprises formed the circulation patterns together.
When developing the circulation industry, we should consider both economic and social effects. Domestic demand （including consumption、work opportunity、government tax income ,etc） will increase once it ends up well.
Nowadays, the global economic is facing a deep change and adjust, which put forward new challenges to our textile industry, including production, marketing, channel……The only way for us become competitive is to pay attention to both branding and quality.
