“New Tides in Qiantang River, Digital Trends along the Silk Road”-The 5th Global Cross-border E-commerce Summit, sponsored by China (Hangzhou) Cross-border E-commerce Comprehensive Pilot Area, will be held at InterContinental Hangzhou on November 24 and 25.

Due to the global pandemic this year, the number of overseas offline stores has declined, and consumers’ shopping channels have shifted online; and traditional offline purchase channels have switched to e-commerce. China has a complete supply chain system which can quickly provide high-quality goods to the world. Trade digitization is becoming an important form of future trade; and as an important component, cross-border e-commerce is actively promoting domestic and overseas dual circulation and boosting the global economic recovery.

The summit’s theme is “Digital Trade Accelerates Smart Manufacturing”, indicating that Made in China relies on trade digitization to connect global users, achieve world-class quality and build a global brand.

This summit will guide the future of cross-border e-commerce. Based on rapid global changes, the summit tackles forward-looking topics such as how trade digitization promotes the development of multilateral trade, how free trade zones promote domestic and overseas dual circulation, how trade digitization transforms the global economy, and how digitization drives foreign trade. The summit’s topics take the perspective of looking at the present from the future, focusing on new changes in the efforts of brands going global, new trends of trading models, and the approaching new era of smart manufacturing.

This will be the right occasion to guide the integration of theory with practice. Based on the contents and topics of the summit, guests from overseas governments and institutions are specially invited to put forward their latest views on cross-border e-commerce in the form of videos, and well-known domestic experts and scholars to interpret the trends and changes brought to the global economy by trade digitization. At the same time, the summit also invites senior executives from outstanding cross-border e-commerce enterprises to present the latest opinions on cross-border e-commerce based on their operations. Therefore, the summit will present not only trend-leading perspectives but also in-depth analysis based on practical experience.
