The Houjie Furniture Line of Foreign Trade held a presentation in Cyrildene on Wednesday as part of their tour around the world.
The presentation showcased their manufacturing hub in the Dongguan City and their different styles of furniture. The guests were very surprised to hear that the entire province is known for its expertise and that it has become the furniture hub.
