In the first two months of this year, China’s economy was forced to shut down in response to the new coronavirus, resulting in an overall contraction in industrial production, consumption and investment. Beijing, Shanghai, guangdong, jiangsu and zhejiang regions, without exception, suffered a heavy economic blow. As you know, these five provinces and cities are the pillars of China’s economy. According to the official percentage increase or decrease data released by the local statistics bureau, the total retail sales of consumer goods in the first two months of this year contracted by 20.5 percent year-on-year. The figures for the same period were 17.9 percent in Beijing, 20.3 percent in Shanghai, 17.8 percent in guangdong, 22.7 percent in jiangsu and 18.0 percent in zhejiang. Economy five strong provinces and cities even so, pour nest under an egg? A sudden covid-19 outbreak has dealt a heavy blow to the flower industry, especially the flower industry. Due to the restrictions of flower materials, logistics and other factors, the business volume of flower shops even dropped by 90% in February, when the business peak was during the festival.
The Dutch flower industry is facing severe challenges as the epidemic spreads across the world. “The Netherlands is now repeating what we were two months ago. The flower industry, like a barometer of the market, can be the first to feel the pain. People rushed into the supermarket to buy necessities, and the flowers were thrown away by the barrel and destroyed. It was heartbreaking.” Guo yanchun said. For Dutch flower practitioners, they have never seen the industry hit so hard. French supermarkets are no longer selling flowers and the British logistics system is closed, while the return of the Chinese market to normal health may be the biggest help for Europe’s flower industry. In the face of the crisis, we need to help each other, together through the difficulties. Guo yanchun believes that the epidemic is a challenge, but also a test question, let everyone stop rational thinking. Flowers can bring people good and happy, a little flower is enough to let a person moved, it is worth flower people stick to and efforts. As long as the flower people always maintain an optimistic attitude, the industry’s spring will come.
