The sudden global outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020 exerts great pressure on the global supply chain. The measures of isolation and shutdown make the consumption demand, and the import and export business volume of the world presents a sharp decline trend. The impact on the food industry, in particular, is so devastating that the food import and export industries in countries worldwide have suffered losses due to the global logistics obstacles.
What is fortunate is that under the guidance of strong policies in countries around the world, the negative impact of the epidemic is fading away. As a huge consumer market in the world, China is regarded as the leading export destination. Since China’s international trade is gradually returning to normal, the demand for imported food is expected to grow at a rapid speed. Furthermore, the new round of import trends in China drives foreign countries to compete to export food to China, such as lobsters from New Zealand, dairy products and meat from Germany, cherries from South America, etc.
Although the global epidemic is slowly getting under control, it has not been completely contained in some areas. Therefore, the realization of import and export trade through offline activities such as exhibitions is still limited. In contrast, the e-commerce platform comes into being a hot online platform connecting importers and exporters from all over the world during the epidemic period.
Driven by science and technology, China’s import market has ushered in innovation in mode. The new import mode, represented by cross-border E-commerce, makes China more closely linked with other countries. In recent years, China has actively expanded imports and gradually lowered the threshold for foreign goods to enter the Chinese market.
At the same time, with the introduction of favorable policies for cross-border e-commerce, Chinese cross-border business also ushered in rapid development, with great potential for future development. In 2020, there will be more than 200 million cross-border consumers. The scale of the cross-border e-commerce market is further expanded, and the volume of import and export transactions is expected to reach 280 billion yuan in 2020.
In and after 2020, the cross-border e-commerce platform will still play a vital role in the future import and export business to connect the buyers and sellers across the world. FOOD2CHINA is such a cross-border e-commerce platform that is committed to establishing a vertical professional service platform for the buyers and distributors who want to export food to China.
