Forty delegates from home and abroad have gathered for an e-commerce training course held in the Hangzhou headquarters of Alibaba Group.
The three-day course, which started on October 29, aims to showcase the city’s expertise in building a "smart city" through big data and artificial intelligence, as well as the group’s technology and strategy regarding e-business development.
Professionals from Thailand, Finland, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal and Italy will draw experience from Hangzhou and then give a boost to their local e-commerce and AI industries.
Over the three days, they will visit Cainiao logistics system in Xiasha area, online-to-offline fresh food platform Freshhema, as well as high-tech firms in Mengxiang and Yunqi towns.
The training class is supported by the Belt and Road Local Cooperation Committee (BRLC), United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and Alibaba Group.
