China's evolving advanced e-commerce program poses critical risks for US and allies

The China 863 Analyst report on China’s satellite-based e-commerce program for developing nations examines its geopolitical, technology, economic and global risk impact. The report examines China’s motives, as well as the cybersecurity risk, intellectual property compromise, data privacy risk, and the increased risk of US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations.

China’s e-commerce platform is expected to be a trillion-dollar opportunity.

Said N. MacDonnell Ulsch, Chief Analyst, “The China economic and technology engine will create a strong global demand to provide technology and goods and services through an e-commerce platform that China owns. Many of the developing nations targeted by China for deployment for services are high-risk countries, already plagued by systemic corruption. Participating companies in the US and allied nations need to execute increased due diligence in order to avoid increased operational, financial, legal, reputation, ethics and regulatory risk.”

Published every two weeks, The China 863 Analyst provides intelligence on China’s transactional and transformative pursuit of 20 critical nation-building technologies and the resulting risk impact.

Satellite-based e-commerce is a strategic move for the Chinese Communist Party, intended to provide more than just revenue to the China treasury. The program is designed to build long-term relationships with emerging nation partners, bolstering the economic, political, and military strength of China. It is also expected that the program will create a tremendous demand for 5G and 6G technologies that China must develop or acquire through legal and illegal methods.

“China is without doubt our greatest adversary,” according to Ulsch. “Every move is calculated with the objective of strengthening its domestic and international status and condition that promotes global economic supremacy. The China threat isn’t going away. What we need to do is manage the threat more effectively, and then manage the multiple complex risks arising from a country that is both adversary and partner.”
