The release date:2019-07-07 22:56:38

On May 10, 2019, the 4th China 50 Members Cross-Border E-Commerce Forum on the sidelines of the Third Global Cross-border E-Commerce Conference was held in Zhengzhou International Convention and Exhibition Center. Mr. Mu Jingchuan, project office manager of SSTC among Maritime-Continental Silk Road Cities for Sustainable Development project, joined the round-table discussion on the Forum.

Mr. Mu Jingchuan highlighted that the cooperation between cities was more flexible and efficient than that between countries. "I think Henan Province could take advantage of its favorable geographical position to cooperate actively with other provincial capitals in trade, investment, industrial cooperation, green economy and tourism."

In the discussion, Mr. Mu also pointed out that e-commerce and cross-border e-commerce were conducive to solving many social, economic and environmental issues and thus advancing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Among the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, the eighth one is decent work and economic growth. For example, cherries are transported from South America to China through Henan Airlines logistics system every year. This is to promote the import of goods from other countries to China, which is also beneficial to other developing countries. Through e-commerce platforms, the goods are delivered in several days or even in several hours. This is due to the construction of infrastructure and the solution of the ‘last kilometer problem’. So, for cross-border e-commerce, similar problems need to be solved, which requires countries and cities to strengthen infrastructure construction and shorten customs clearance time. "

Mr. Mu concluded that cross-border e-commerce is conducive to advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
