Attendees included cross-border e-commerce operators and more than 1,500 professionals from numerous nations such as the United States, Australia, Russia, the United Kingdom, India, Malaysia, Thailand and South Africa.
Participation from Worldwide Guests
A global event naturally attracts participation from guests from across the globe. The large number of attendees shared their insights with regards to a wide range of agendas from Chinese-Russian trade, overseas expansion of brands, cross-border technology and cross-border payment to e-commerce in Africa and social media via short videos, among other subject matters.
Chairperson of Ebrun and Director of the Ebrun Research Institute Zheng Min: The choice of using the agglomeration of cross-border e-commerce service resources as a springboard for industrial development is highly visionary. We also look forward to this conference to ascend as a benchmark event of the industry.
Asia-Pacific General Manager of Yandex Sergey Ustinov: The proportion of domestic and cross-border e-commerce operators in Russia amounted to only 8% in 2010, but the ratio of cross-border e-commerce operators already rose to 33% by 2016, and it is estimated that the figure might reach 50% by 2020.
Vice President of LianLian Pay Zheng Jian: If we look at the payment market from various dimensions, the Chinese B2C market already has 800 million consumers, but the volume of transactions in the Chinese corporate payment (B2B) market is far bigger than that of the B2C market.
