Are you a business currently selling B2C, considering selling B2C in the future, or looking to expand your global client base in China? Then this webinar is designed for you.
For businesses looking to sell internationally, China poses an increasingly compelling growth opportunity. China is the world’s largest e-commerce market (accounting for over 50% of transactions globally) and this year it’s set to overtake the US as the world’s largest retail market with $5.07 trillion in projected retail sales (eMarketer, May 2020). With China’s growing middle class of more than 400 million people, and digitalisation making it easier to export to China, now is the perfect time to build your understanding of this fast-moving consumer market.
