E-Commerce in Nanhai District is Facing a New Start
It is reported that the Nanhai E-Commerce Association was established in 2009, initiated by Anhuai Co., Ltd., Foshan City Nanhai Popula Fan Co., Ltd. and Guangdong Sunrise House Ware Co., Ltd. After 11 years of development, e-commerce in Nanhai District develops in new ways, involving various traditional fields and industries while integrating Internet, big data, blockchain and artificial intelligence into application.
Liang Xijun said that the current e-commerce was far different from that of 11 years ago, with the progress of technology and the technology-driven innovation. E-commerce started as pure "online trade" which only integrated demand and supply information of buyers and sellers, but today it has integrated technologies like Internet, big data, blockchain and artificial intelligence. It has penetrated into traditional fields, with the integration and distribution of resources from upstream, downstream or all enterprises in the industry chain. At the present stage, whether an enterprise can apply new technologies and new models to achieve transformation and upgrading is the key for a new start with high standards.
