Cross-border E-commerce Strategy Luncheon Series (4) - New Challenges in Cross-border Ecommerce

Understanding the latest policy update and development in China Cross-border Ecommerce

With increasing income and emerging trend of digitalization, Chinese shoppers are now looking for one-of-a-kind, authentic and quality products. They are shifting from purchasing low-price domestic products to foreign goods which leads to a booming demand on cross-border e-commerce. According to a recent survey released by McKinsey[1], Chinese cross-border e-commerce sales amounted up to USD 40 billion (nearly 259 billion renminbi) in 2015. To facilitate customs clearance and stem illegal gray-market imports, the China government established cross-border e-commerce comprehensive pilot zones in 12 cities last year and posted new duty tax policy on 8 April 2016. So how could foreign brands and retailers capture the opportunities against these new challenges?

With overwhelming response in 15 June luncheon, another session will be held on 27 July. During this luncheon, our guest speaker will share:
