From all export sales to both domestic and foreign sales, on the one hand, it is inseparable from the company's precautions and early transformation, and on the other hand, it is inseparable from the support of the local government. Since the outbreak of the epidemic, Yuyao City, together with a number of e-commerce platforms, through the establishment of Yuyao foreign trade enterprise product areas in each e-commerce platform, to promote enterprises to open online flagship stores and other ways, and constantly help foreign trade enterprises to open up domestic online sales channels.
