The weather of the Main Harbor and the commercial movement motivated Alex Cheng, owner of the Zhong Ji store, to settle down. He sells imported vegetables, sauces, and seasonings. The Zhong Ji store is located in Via Colon. It offers bottles labeled with soy sauce, sesame oil or oyster brands such as Lee Kum Ki. His clients are the members of the Chinese community in Guayaquil. Jos4 Wonsang, president of the Charitable Society of the Chinese Colony of Ecuador, says that these businesses came precisely to meet the demand of the Chinese population in the city.
