About event:
COVID-19 is affecting many e-commerce businesses and how consumers shop online. In this difficult time, many brick-and-mortar retailers are watching foot traffic and sales drop to near zero. The most significant shift in consumer behaviour is happening in e-commerce globally. In China, e-commerce platforms are reporting behavioural and demographic shifts. During Spring Festival, daily usage of e-commerce platforms grew 56% week-on-week. Two weeks later it was up a further 96%.
Austrade is working with a number of partners to share market insights on how COVID-19 has impacted cross border e-commerce in different aspects. In this session, we invited Scott Ni, Senior Director from Alibaba Group to share:
Insights on Alibaba’s platform in China including Tmall, Taobao and Kaola during COVID-19
Insights on Alibaba’s platform in ASEAN including Lazada and Redmart during COVID-19
How to engage with online marketplaces in China and ASEAN
Following up with this webinar, in the next month, five webinars will be podcasted with each focusing on one industry with industry leads from Alibaba Group
