Topic: Expanding to China through cross-border e-commerce
Date/time: Wednesday, 9th December, 11am-12pm GMT
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.

Join WorldFirst and specialist Partner, Zarina Kanji from Tmall Global, Alibaba Group UK & Nordics, for a free, live webinar to learn more about the opportunities and things to consider when selling directly to consumers in China.

Topics to be covered:
  • An introduction to China B2C opportunities for UK and European based SMEs

  • Examples of UK-based SMEs currently selling in China and how they’ve approached the market

  • An explanation on how the Alibaba ecosystem (including Tmall Global & WorldFirst) can support businesses selling internationally

  • Q & A session
