The event’s host said it is the biggest online trade show in cross-border trade this year. More than 10 million wholesalers are expected to participate.
The trade show, scheduled to run through June 28, will put on 6,000 cross-border business-to-business livestreams and provide a string of free or favorable services for cross-border trade, covering every part of export for electronic businesses, which is expected to help enterprises save up to 60 percent in contract fulfillment costs.
