Cross-border e-commerce platforms are delivering ChinaAfrica economic and trade cooperation into a new age, and both China and African countries should take the opportunity to foster Internet development by improving relevant legal systems, said Lu Wei, secretary-general of the Internet Society of China at the Forum on Enhancing Rule of Law in China-Africa Internet Investment held by Beijing Foreign Studies University on Dec. 23 in Beijing. The establishment of an e-commerce platform should respect local customs and follow local laws by understanding their cultures, establishing local warehouses and helping improve the local Internet, said Zhao Haoxing, a professor of management from Zhejiang Gongshang University. The comprehensive system combining online and offline cross-border commerce in Africa should be established through abiding by the principles of prioritizing service and supply, and lawfully doing business, Zhao said.
