What’s the best way to ship goods? Do I need to setup an ecommerce platform? How will I get paid? Do I need a license? Should I sell direct or indirect? Does my business have what it takes to sell in China? Can I export a service?

These are among the pressing questions and challenges that will be addressed at the forum by our speakers.

The speakers will also give you the knowledge to market, sell, and fulfill orders internationally by taking full advantage of the Internet and the opportunities it creates.
