The 2011 Import and Export Market for Sewing Machine Parts, Needles, Furniture, Bases, and Covers in China
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on sewing machine parts, needles, furniture, bases, and covers in China face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying sewing machine parts, needles, furniture, bases, and covers to China? How important is China compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of sewing machine parts, needles, furniture, bases, and covers vary from one country of origin to another in China? On the supply side, China also exports sewing machine parts, needles, furniture, bases, and covers. Which countries receive the most exports from China? How are these exports concentrated across buyers? What is the value of these exports and which countries are the largest buyers?
This report was created for strategic planners, international marketing executives and import/export managers who are concerned with the market for sewing machine parts, needles, furniture, bases, and covers in China. With the globalization of this market, managers can no longer be contented with a local view. Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics which appear several years after the fact. I have developed a methodology, based on macroeconomic and trade models, to estimate the market for sewing machine parts, needles, furniture, bases, and covers for those countries serving China via exports, or supplying from China via imports. It does so for the current year based on a variety of key historical indicators and econometric models.
In what follows, Chapter 2 begins by summarizing where China fits into the world market for imported and exported sewing machine parts, needles, furniture, bases, and covers. The total level of imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for China in particular, is estimated using a model which aggregates across over 150 key country markets and projects these to the current year. From there, each country represents a percent of the world market. This market is served from a number of competitive countries of origin. Based on both demand- and supply-side dynamics, market shares by country of origin are then calculated across each country market destination. These shares lead to a volume of import and export values for each country and are aggregated to regional and world totals. In doing so, we are able to obtain maximum likelihood estimates of both the value of each market and the share that China is likely to receive this year. From these figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers to prioritize China compared to other major country markets. In this way, all the figures provided in this report are forecasts that can be combined with internal information sources for strategic planning purposes.
The Shanghai Club - Shanghai - 1911
The Bund, Shanghai The neo-Classical style building was the gentlemen's club in Shanghai for British taipans and commercial captains; famous for its Long Bar where one positioned oneself according to rank - seniors by the windows, griffins in the gloom of the interior. No Chinese and no women were admitted. Decidedly snooty and exclusive, it was modelled on like clubs in London. As with most old buildings along the Bund, this one has sunk into the marshy ground, giving it a somewhat squat appearance today. Architect: RB Morehead This is an extract of "Fortune" magazine in 1935 which captures the essence of this institution:- "Most exclusive is the great, gloomy Shanghai Club (British, though other nationalities are elected), whose furniture is heavy and sedate. At one end of the prodigious bar (Noel Coward said, laying his cheek on it, that he could see the curvature of the earth) you will probably find Mr. Arthur W. Burkill holding forth on the economics of rubber, in which speculative Shanghailanders have lost millions. Your lunch is British. After eating it you will let yourself down for a doze into one of the big leather thrones in the library on the second floor." Another commentator Harold Acton wrote in the mid-1930s that at the Shanghai Club:- "The tone of conversation was intensely anti-Chinese and when I ventured to protest, I was told I was not qualified to have an opinion. Thirty years - sometimes more - without troubling to learn the language and these 'Old China Hands' pickled in alcohol considered themselves supreme authorities on the country and the people." or this pointed comment on the bar to membership at the Shanghai Club of anyone other than Europeans:- "One thing was certain: their antecedents precluded elbow-bending with the exalted tipplers fined up sometimes three-deep at the Shanghai Club bar. The club was exclusively white. So it was that a former sergeant of artillery, successful in the textile trade but almost illiterate, a school-leaver at fourteen, as blunt of speech as any raucous drill-square martinet but born of pure white parents in some terraced hovel in Keighley, could pay his monthly dues and enter the sanctum sanctorum. Not so the product of Haileybury and Oxford, possessor of an M.A. degree, partner in a highly profitable import-export enterprise - but born, unfortunately, in a large mansion in Avenue Haig of a union between the descendants of a pukka sahib and a Chinese female, nice and all that, but certainly not pukka". Things are looking brighter for this former British bastion of snobbery. After lying empty for a number of years (previously a Seamen's Hostel and a KFC outlet!!), it is now in the process of being redeveloped into a luxury hotel, the Waldorf Astoria on The Bund. It promises to preserve the historical integrity of the building and is set to open in 2011. Update (7 Oct 2010): after 69 years between drinks, the 110-ft Long Bar has been re-created at the restored Shanghai Club building, now part of the Waldorf Astoria. "There were probably few places in the world where per capita consumption of alcoholic drinks was greater," wrote Carl Crow, a journalist who arrived in Shanghai in 1911. Noel Coward had once famously remarked that ‘one could see the curvature of the earth along it’.
Morning sun casts shadows of iron gate on Living Room wall
Last year when we redid the fireplace wall of our living room, plastering over the old gray brick and painting it a serene white--fireplace and all-- I had no idea that it would become a "shadow wall." I was stunned the next morning when the sun rose outside our trefoil-patterned iron gate and cast trefoil-patterned shadows on the wall! And when in the late afternoon, the setting sun cast shadows of a large yucca plant just outside onto the wall too. Then when our friend gave us the enameled Chinese desk screen on the hearth, I noticed it's open fretwork frame had a similar pattern in it. Minimal but maximal, allowing the play of daily light to produce an ever changing slideshow! This is part of my set, Living in a Jungle.
