There is little doubt that online trading and marketing is the way of the future, across almost every industry. DHgate.com is one of the world's leading B2B e-commerce sites; the low cost China wholesale goods available through the trading platform are business enablers for hundreds of small and medium-sized entrepreneurs (SMEs) across the globe. DHgate.com's CEO, Diane Wang, and one of the China wholesale trading platform's foremost VIP sellers, Li Meng, recently spoke at the 2010 Beijing E-Commerce B2B Summit Forum aimed at discovering ways to develop the number and expertise of SMEs within China.

I am looking forward to new initiatives and a new crop of SMEs coming out of this forum. Every new business enriches the environment for the rest.

DHgate.com has firmly established itself as a leader in China wholesale and B2B industry. The company was recently called on to share their insight and expertise into online business at the 2010 Beijing E-Commerce B2B Summit Forum.

The summit was held on July 28th at Beijing's Empark Grand Hotel. Attendees included government officials, industry experts, representatives of leading B2B enterprises and regional institutions.

DHgate.com's CEO, Ms. Diane Wang, shared her insight into e-commerce from a B2B perspective at the conference. Her advice to new e-commerce enterprises had two main pillars:

  •     Innovation is key in e-commerce. DHgate.com itself is a model business in this regard, constantly developing new policies, facilities and tools to enrich the China wholesale trading experience for both buyers and sellers on the platform.
  •     Many enterprises have gaps in key areas, including the concepts of e-commerce, understanding of the technology used and access to the main tools used in China wholesale as well as B2C trading.

Li Meng is one of the foremost VIP sellers on DHgate.com's China wholesale trading platform, and was also invited to share his expertise with the forum participants. The outstanding reputation of his niche fishing lure business has led to Li being featured in international newspaper, China Daily, previously. He said that there are 5 main advantages to e-commerce over and above standard storefronts:
1.    Instant responses and transactions
2.    Applicability to a wide range of industries
3.    Low startup cost
4.    Equal opportunities for both small and large businesses
5.    Utilizing inter-continental differences for better business outcomes

James He of DHgate.com said of the forum that: "I am looking forward to new initiatives and a new crop of SMEs coming out of this forum. Every new business enriches the environment for the rest."
