I have a nephew that is currently teaching English at a private school in China. He has a bit of time on his hands and have successfully "scoped" out two exporters for me thus far and is the go-between for us and an exporter of valves and seals that want to come in to the SA market.
I was wondering if he could not market his services here in SA. I know a lot of people are reluctant to import from China because of all the scams going around. Maybe he can offer a service where he goes to a certain supplier on the clients request and maybe even check for certain specifications on products etc.
