Bangladeshi businesses keen to bolster trade with China through e-commerce

A two-day training on "how to export to China through e-commerce" began here on Monday.

The training was jointly organized by the Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI), a leading business chamber in Bangladesh, and the International Trade Centre.

Economic and Commercial Counsellor of the Embassy of China in Bangladesh Li Guangjun and DCCI President Abul Kasem Khan, among others, were present at the inaugural ceremony of the training.

About 25 participants took part in the training session.

DCCI President Abul Kasem Khan, welcoming the participants, said that small and medium entrepreneurs (SMEs) especially those who are involved in e-commerce will benefit from this training course.

"In order to bolster exports to China through e-commerce, an entrepreneur does not need to go to China physically," he said.

Li Guangjun said Bangladeshi SMEs can export to China through e-commerce.

He said the bilateral trade between China and Bangladesh last year was about 15 billion U.S. dollars, out of which Bangladesh exported products worth 900 million dollars.
