With more exhibition booths and more exhibitors, purchasers and visitors, the 2007 China Yiwu International Commodities Fair of this year contains some more exlements of innovation and of technology. Presently, Yiwu is not contented with just working as a selling platform of various commodities but is also striving to built itself into an R&D center of small commodities. Now, more and more Yiwu enterprises are working on their would-be famous brand in their own R&D centers. It is commonly recognized among Yiwu enterprises that brand and innovation is the fundamental principle for further development.
Yiwu enterprises are changing their roles from manufacturers to designers, from OEMs to brand originators. At the 12th Yiwu People's Congress of CPC held early this year, the concept was promoted that Yiwu should establish itself as an international creation and innovation center of commodities, quite different from the previous goal-- an international manufacturing center of commodities. This difference shows Yiwu's resolution to strengthen independent innovation and promote competitive power.
