BEIJING, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- Northwest China's Shaanxi Province officially launched the pilot cross-border e-commerce B2B export business at the Xi'an Xianyang International Airport.
A cargo flight loaded with calligraphy and ink paintings with local characteristics, dolls featuring ladies in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) and other cultural and creative products, took off at the airport on Tuesday, bound for Inchon, South Korea.
Starting from September 1, 12 directly subordinated institutions of China's General Administration of Customs (GAC), including the Xi'an Customs, have been added to a list for piloting the cross-border e-commerce B2B export supervision.
Cross-border e-commerce B2B exporters will be given priority for inspections and streamlined declaration procedures, with more efficient clearance at lower costs.
"The implementation of the cross-border e-commerce B2B export provides new opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises and attracts more foreign trade enterprises to settle in the Airport New City," said Ren Yi, deputy director of customs at Xi'an Xianyang Airport.
