Chapter Summary

The chief foreign trade in the wool produced in China is in the grades of wool that are used for making carpet yarns. The main types are classified by wool exporters as follows: Sining, Kansu, Turkistan, Mongolian, Shansi, Chinchow and Hailar. The wool trade in China has never received from the Chinese Government the special consideration which its importance merits. Unfortunately for the Chinese traders in wool, who are most directly affected, they have no organized method of presenting a case for their interests to the Chinese Government. Unless the efficiency of the trade in the interior of China can be improved and the cost of it reduced, it must be impossible to promote the export trade, ensure a continued supply of wool to the domestic woolen textile industry, maintain the interests of frontier traders and strengthen this economic link between China and its frontier peoples.
