China leads the way when it comes to e-commerce offering spectacular opportunities for Dutch companies. E-commerce companies such as Alibaba, Tmall, JD and Taobao take the largest portion of the online retail market and can provide a good platform for foreign companies to sell products and services in China.
The complexity and size (USD 920 billion) of the Chinese e-commerce market demands thorough preparation from any foreign company to succeed.
Alibaba CEO and founder Jack Ma and StartupEnvoy Constantijn van Oranje received the freshly published China Cross Border E-Commerce Guide at Alibaba’s headquarters in Hangzhou from the Netherlands Consulate General in Shanghai.
It provides an abundant analysis of the Chinese e-commerce market and gives anyone who wants to enter the Chinese market via e-commerce channels clear insights and tips.
The Dutch Consulate General in Shanghai created this guide book with input from DigiDutch, a Shanghai-based collective of Dutch companies specialised in e-commerce in China, and in close cooperation with the other missions of the Netherlands Economic Network in China.
