Under the terms of the MOU, DHgate and CNIS will jointly establish a dedicated standardization research group, focused on the field of cross-border e-commerce. Leveraging DHgate's deep sector expertise, advanced technology, and strong position with users, the two parties will study and evaluate processes relating to managing merchants, commodities, buyers, transactions, disputes and customer service, to build and promote cross-border e-commerce standards nationwide.

The initiative is part of DHgate's long-term effort to empower small and medium size enterprises (SMEs), promote SME development, and enhance cross-border e-commerce internationally and within the Greater Bay Area, including Hong Kong.

While the scale of cross-border e-commerce transactions continues to increase rapidly, and the number of online trade platforms continues to grow, SMEs still face a number of challenges due to complex dispute resolution procedures and other non-standard industry practices. This partnership will draw on DHgate's decade-long experience and insight, with the ultimate aim of addressing these issues and helping to lower the international trade barriers many SMEs face.

At the signing ceremony, attended by Ms. Diane Wang, Founder and CEO of DHgate, and Mr. Qiu Yueming, Vice President of CNIS, Mr. Qiu commented: "I'm delighted that CNIS has this opportunity to work with DHgate on promoting cross-border e-commerce standardization in China. DHgate has achieved a great deal in the field of cross-border e-commerce, and it is our hope that, together, we can reach new heights."

Ms. Diane Wang, Founder and CEO of DHgate commented: "Standardization is a fundamental element of all efficient business operations -- promoting responsive service and effective enterprise management. As a leading B2B cross-border e-commerce platform, we believe that it is incumbent upon DHgate to help establish and promote best practices and standards for cross-border transactions, to make China's online Silk Road as smooth as possible."
