COVID-19 update for cross border e-commerce by Alibaba Group focusing on food and beverage

About event:

COVID-19 is affecting many e-commerce businesses and how consumers shop online. In this difficult time, many brick-and-mortar retailers are watching foot traffic and sales drop to near zero. The most significant shift in consumer behaviour is happening in e-commerce globally. In China, e-commerce platforms are reporting behavioural and demographic shifts. During Spring Festival, daily usage of e-commerce platforms grew 56% week-on-week. Two weeks later it was up a further 96%.

Austrade is working with a number of partners to share market insights on how COVID-19 has impacted cross border e-commerce in different aspects.
