China is opening its first wholesale tea packing and packing games store in the southern Chinese city of Singapore, the official Xinhua news agency reported Sunday.
Xinhua said the store would open in early July.
The store will be staffed by women and children and it will be equipped with an automated equipment and supply chain.
Chinese tea companies have been in talks with the Singapore government to open retail stores to compete with their American counterparts, Xinhua reported.
Last year, the United States and China signed an agreement for a tea trade agreement known as the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).
The two countries are also trying to boost trade in food, textiles, and cosmetics.
