There are many small to large retail companies in the Persian Gulf who would like to source a wide variety of products directly from mainland China rather than through middle men or agents. The cost of sourcing a reliable

manufacturer in China can be considerable. Generally this type of sourcing is done via the internet, which has its own inherent risks, or by visiting China.
