China’s wet market is the fastest-growing of the major economies, and with growing demand for food and other products, it has been a boon for China’s central bank.
But with food and retail sales growing faster than demand, the country’s government is starting to worry that counterfeiters are making their way to its markets.
“It’s the largest market in China, and there’s so much demand for goods, and we have been tracking these people who are trying to make their way into China,” said Jiyuan Liu, director of the China Center for Strategic and International Studies at Peking University.
It was not immediately clear how many people were actually making their purchases in China’s green markets.
But, Liu said, “the price of the product is high and it’s easy to fake.”
According to the Global Food Security Report, which compiled data from the World Bank, there were 2.8 million food and beverage outlets across the globe, with an average price of $5.3 per person.
That figure was more than twice as high as the number of retail outlets, and nearly double the figure for all food and drink stores combined.
“We’re seeing a huge surge in the use of the green market,” Liu said.
“We have people using the market as a way to make money.”
In the U.S., where there are fewer food and grocery outlets, there is no evidence that people are using the green markets to make a profit.
A recent study by the University of Michigan found that, at the time of the study, there was no evidence of fake food and soda, and that a large portion of the fake food found in the market was made up of cheap, local food.
“The price of fake goods, even in China itself, is high,” said Matthew Miller, a senior research fellow at the University the University at Buffalo and author of “Green Markets and the Future of Food.”
“There’s no evidence there’s been a massive increase in counterfeiters.”
“Green market” has also been a rallying cry for some in the U, but it has become a rallying issue in China.
Chinese authorities have been looking for ways to crack down on the green-market business, and their crackdown on counterfeiters has become even more prominent in recent months.
On April 1, China’s top food and food-processing authority, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, ordered retailers to immediately shut down any fake outlets.
It also warned consumers to report any suspicious sales or sales at inflated prices.
It has also banned the use or sale of fake labels on packaged products and banned the sale of goods from companies that do not comply with government regulations.
The government also set up a new website, greenmarket-reports.gov, where consumers can report fraudulent transactions and report fake labels.
But many people are still making their money in the green marketplace, Liu explained.
“There are people who don’t even know where they are making money,” Liu added.
“I think that’s because they’re not aware of the fact that they’re doing it.”
The green market is just one of many sectors where there have been reports of fraudulent purchases.
The Chinese government has been investigating dozens of counterfeiters for nearly a year, and the authorities have seized more than 20,000 counterfeit items and more than 1,300 businesses, including restaurants, supermarkets, and drug stores.
Last month, the government banned a company from using a fake label in a product sold in the United States.
“I think the government is very concerned about the use and misuse of the red market,” said Miller.
“There are a lot of counterfeit goods and they are being sold in different places and they’re being sold at different prices.
It’s a lot more complicated than it seems at first.”
