These issues have been recognized and praised by the government, the community, and member companies. Vice Mayor Qiao Yu hopes that the International Chamber of Commerce will continue to actively build a communication platform in the future to help enterprises expand cooperation channels. It is necessary to carry out economic and trade exchange activities in various channels and in various forms, and play a more important role in promoting Foshan's foreign trade and economic and technological cooperation. It is necessary to constantly consolidate the foundation of work and have a new role in serving enterprises. We must focus on strengthening the construction of the Chamber of Commerce and enhancing the influence of the Chamber of Commerce. We will vigorously attract more outstanding enterprises to join in, and bring together enterprises, industries and economic and trade elites who are interested in developing an export-oriented economy to create a first-class Foshan International Chamber of Commerce.

Under the research and development of Chen Xiaofeng, a PVC sheet furniture for the Middle East market has increased the sales of Zhongge Group to 400 million yuan. Courageously in the global market, Chen Xiaofeng insisted on "running plagiarism with innovation". Over the years, Zhongge Group has applied for more than 100 patent protections.
[Awarding Words] Good design naturally attracts countless "followers". Today, Zhongge has applied for patent protection for products independently developed and designed, and applied for more than 100 invention patents, utility models and appearance patents. How does the furniture industry go its own way? Chen Xiaofeng's answer is: "Running plagiarism with innovation".
In the upcoming 2019, Zhongge will still make more efforts in product innovation, and make products according to the needs of customers. Zhongge believes that in the future, relying on the support of the Chamber of Commerce and the efforts of the company, it will continue to do a good job of products and do its own brand.
For the furniture market, especially the international market, the volume of furniture is always there. The key is how to find new demands. So in 2019 we will continue to innovate and tap new demands as we did in 2018. "--Chen Xiaofeng.
