NANNING, April 22 (Xinhua) -- Nanning City, capital of South China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, is accelerating the pace to build a cross-border e-commerce business cluster facing the ASEAN.
The China (Nanning) Cross-Border E-Commerce Comprehensive Pilot Zone is now home to more than 50 cross-border e-commerce enterprises, which have completed 6.82 million orders since 2020 and an import and export volume of 284.01 million yuan, said the Department of Commerce of Guangxi.
Launched in 2018, the pilot zone has signed strategic cooperation agreements with major domestic e-commerce enterprises such as Alibaba, JD.com and SF Express.
Currently, LAZADA, the largest e-commerce platform in southeast Asia, is accelerating the construction of the cross-border innovation service center set up in the pilot zone.
It will build a China-ASEAN cross-border e-commerce industry chain with seller incubation, cross-border e-commerce live broadcast and multi-language cross-border e-commerce training.
Nanning's land, sea and air cross-border logistics system for ASEAN has also gradually taken shape, the SF Express' Nanning to Ho Chi Minh City all-cargo air route has been opened, and the customs clearance environment of China-Vietnam road transport corridor is stably operating.
The pilot zone plans to introduce more than 30 new cross-border e-commerce enterprises this year, and take products such as fruits and maternal and baby supplies as a breakthrough in e-commerce import business with ASEAN.
According to Guangxi Department of Commerce, driven by the construction of the pilot zone, the cross-border e-commerce transaction volume in Guangxi is expected to account for 15 percent of the total foreign trade in 2020.
