BEIJING, Jan. 15 (Xinhua) -- Sichuan Province in southwest China on January 11 issued two implementation plans on the construction of cross-border e-commerce comprehensive pilot zones in Deyang and Mianyang, two prefecture-level cities of the province, reported Sichuan Daily Thursday.
According to the plans, the construction of the two pilot zones will both include offline cross-border e-commerce space layout and online cross-border e-commerce public services.
The implementation plan on the building of the Deyang cross-border e-commerce comprehensive pilot zone says that the pilot zone will rely on the advantage of Deyang as an industrial powerhouse and a city with booming foreign trade to help build the city into a world-class major equipment manufacturing base.
Specific efforts will include establishing a logistics port cross-border e-commerce global resource service center, exploring new models like "reverse customization plus cross-border e-commerce" and "bonded display plus cross-border e-commerce" and promoting direct truck from Deyang to Qinzhou, a prefecture-level city in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, etc.
With these efforts, by 2025, the zone will introduce and cultivate 100-odd cross-border e-commerce enterprises, set up more than five industry leading enterprises with functional headquarters in Deyang, and foster and establish three featured cross-border e-commerce industrial parks, with professional talents surpassing 1,000, 40-odd percent of the foreign trade firms leveraging cross-border e-commerce and cross-border e-commerce transaction exceeding 1 billion yuan.
The implementation plan on the building of the Mianyang cross-border e-commerce comprehensive pilot zone says that the pilot zone will fully release Mianyang's intelligent manufacturing potential as well as manufacturing capability of the whole electronic information industry chain to build the city into a new highland of cross-border e-commerce development in western China.
Specific efforts will include building a cross-border e-commerce export cluster with local characteristics and a cross-border e-commerce import consumer business circle, allowing cross-border e-commerce foreign exchange settlement through personal foreign exchange accounts, and exploring cross-border e-commerce customized production mode in electronic components, new material products and other industrial fields, etc.
With these efforts, by 2025, Mianyang City will introduce and cultivate 500 cross-border e-commerce enterprises, and develop ten cross-border trade service firms, with cross-border e-commerce import and export transactions totaling 1.5 billion yuan.
