With robust promotion of the “Belt and Road” construction, cross-border e-commerce and other new business models have provided China with the necessary impetus to promote high-quality foreign trade development. Zheng Min, Chairman of the Board of Ebrun and Director of Ebrun Research Institute said third-party services are indispensable for the development of e-commerce. Transaction, payment, logistics, marketing, technology and compliance management services emerge as a platform or professional institution, and drive iterative growth of cross-border e-commerce sector. In globalization, manufacturing and resource consumption are widely distributed while service resources are shared globally. Thus, cross-border service resources provided by third-party platforms and professional institutions serve as an express means for speedily delivering goods to users. Chengdu, the “fourth pole” of cross-border e-commerce sector behind Beijing, Shanghai and Hangzhou, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, is an industrial hub with significant regional influence and favorable environment for nurturing internet-related industries. “It is a forward-looking choice for the development of cross-border e-commerce service resources.
