SHANGHAI — While a blustery cold spell blew in here on the final day of the Fashion Accessories China Sourcing Fair at the New International Exhibition Center in Pudong, a chill lurked inside, as well.
Buyers were scarce and eager domestic exhibitors accosted every foreign-looking visitor who walked past. It seemed that more than the weather was keeping turnout low, as participants said they hoped to survive the economic downturn in the U.S. and Europe by shifting to more domestic sales.
