Chinese cross-border e-biz achieves over 3 bln yuan of sales
BEIJING, Jan. 27 (Xinhua) -- China's cross-border e-business done on a pilot basis as from 2012 had yielded more than three billion yuan of import and export value by the end of 2014, according to the General Administration of Customs (GAC) on Monday.
From July 2013 to the end of 2014, the cross-border e-business accumulated about 2.04 billion yuan of export value in 16 pilot cities. The exports covered 181 countries and regions in the world.
Meanwhile, China has implemented pilot operation of cross-border e-business import business in seven cities, including Shanghai, Chongqing, Hangzhou, Ningbo, Zhengzhou, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. They examined a total 4.11 million packages, worth about 1.01 billion yuan.
The GAC developed a united customs clearance administration system for cross-border e-business exports in 2014, which entered into operation in Dongguan last July. The GAC's spokesman Zhang Guangzhi said the system had been deployed in Guangzhou, Nanjing, Shenyang, Xi'an and Yinchuan, and its inter-connection with e-business companies would be accelerated.
