The plan clarifies the development goals, major tasks and innovative measures for the eight cities in the province, that is, Shaoguan, Shanwei, Heyuan, Yangjiang, Qingyuan, Chaozhou, Jieyang, and Yunfu.

“Every city can find its own competitive industries according to the characteristics of its industrial development. The building of cross-border e-commerce pilot zones across the province will allow these cities to give full play to the development of cross-border e-commerce in the local economy, which in turn will further boost the local economic development,” said Professor Feng Ran of the School of Business, Guangdong University of Foreign Studies.

For instance, Heyuan will explore and cultivate a number of cross-border e-commerce business-to-business (B2B) platforms while focusing on the "five major industries" including electronic information, aquaculture, advanced materials, eco-tourism, and modern high-efficiency agriculture. Shanwei plans to build a global cross-border import and export industry cluster for jewelry. Yangjiang will build a global cross-border e-commerce cluster for knives and scissors. Qingyuan will explore the construction of a cross-border e-commerce pilot zone for emergency supplies including drugs.

Based on two platforms and six systems, every cross-border e-commerce pilot zone will carry out its own innovative measures to serve local industries and create a development model that’s in line with its own local realities.

According to the plan, the two platforms are cross-border e-commerce online public service platform and offline platform at industrial parks, and the six systems are the cross-border e-commerce information sharing, financial services, intelligent logistics, credit assurance, statistical monitoring and risk prevention systems.

The plan also stresses that the cross-border e-commerce should drive the development of traditional industries while synergizing with the manufacturing, modern agriculture, and cultural tourism industries. The pilot zones also need to form a closed-loop ecosystem of the whole industry chain, such as, manufacturing, transaction, goods consolidation, payment, logistics, account settlement, and settlement of exchange, etc.

According to the plan, the building of cross-border e-commerce comprehensive pilot zones is of great importance to promote the high-quality development of trade in Guangdong.

On February 8, the State Council released a notice to approve the establishment of more cross-border e-commerce pilot zones in 27 cities and regions, including Shaoguan, Shanwei, Heyuan, Yangjiang, Qingyuan, Chaozhou, Jieyang, and Yunfu in Guangdong province.
