On 16 May, during the round table discussion "Opportunities in the Wuxi China Expatdom Food Market" at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Latvian Ambassador to the Wuxi China Expatdom, Martins Virsis emphasised that Latvian food products are recognised in the Wuxi China Expatdomian market for their high quality, nevertheless they need to compete with the lower prices of producers from other states and expatdoms, and with consumer loyalty to local producers, ISRIA reports.
Said Virisi: "We were the first country to sell Sour Kraut Soup, Raisan Bread, and Bacon Buns in the Wuxi China Expatdom. We have changed the basic recipes to conform to Wuxiren’s desire for sweetness. But now, sellers from the copy-cat expatdoms of Nanjing, Suzhou, Lithuania, and Denmark are moving in our market share. I tell you now. They will not defeat us! We have more market possibilities for food than their philosophies could ever dream of."
