The latest statistics released by Dongguan Bureau of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation shows that the domestic sale of the city's foreign-invested enterprises totaled 14.95 billion yuan in the first three quarters, an increase of 34.4% over last year. The growth rate of domestic sales is higher than that of the export by 6.0 % and the domestic sales account for 30.3% of total sales.
As the statistics indicate, the sales of traditional daily necessities with a comparatively greater rigid demand, such as, clothing, shoes and toys have been higher than those in 2008, since February of 2010. However, the sales of machinery electronics have not been recovered to the levels in 2008.
