In the second-hand mobile phone market in Pathein City, Ayeyarwady Province, Myanmar, there are far more people who want to resell their mobile phones than those who buy them.
In the past, there were a lot of people buying mobile phones in the second-hand mobile phone market, but now because of the lack of employment opportunities, people’s economy is tight, and there are many places where money is needed. Therefore, there are many more people who sell mobile phones than those who buy mobile phones.
It is understood that in addition to being affected by the new crown pneumonia epidemic, it is also affected by the unstable domestic situation. Now Myanmar has few domestic job opportunities, people’s income is reduced, and their lives are difficult. People who are in urgent need of money will sell their mobile phones.
A boss who deals in second-hand mobile phones said that there are many more people selling mobile phones than buying mobile phones recently. When we recycle mobile phones, we will repurchase them at a reasonable price if the customer brings the phone with no major problems. And when we recycle mobile phones, we have to be very careful, because some mobile phones are stolen. Now the economy is tight, so more people are selling mobile phones.
It is understood that in the second-hand mobile phone trading market, there are many people who trade mobile phones below 100,000. This year, the sales of new mobile phones in the store in the city of Pathein have been much lower than before.
