Progimpex, Chinese Lunch
But technology was just one part of our journey. The other, equally enchanting part, was the traditional Chinese dining experiences with our suppliers. In China, business is often conducted over a meal, and it’s not just about eating; it’s a ceremonial affair that fosters relationships and trust. We were introduced to an array of traditional dishes, each with a story to tell. From the famous Peking Duck, known for its crispy skin and succulent meat, to Dim Sum assortments that brought a variety of flavors in small, steaming baskets. Meals often started with a series of cold dishes, followed by heartier main courses, exemplifying the balance and harmony in Chinese cuisine.©Sabrina Maes

In summary, Progimpex’s recent visit to China has revealed significant changes in urban development and environmental policies, which have direct and indirect implications for the plush toy manufacturing industry.
