What's On

E-commerce is growing rapidly in Asia, a trend that has been fuelled by the widespread adoption of mobile devices and the convenience of online shopping, and boosted further by the pandemic. It is estimated that e-commerce sales in the Asian market will reach US$2 trillion in 2025.

At the same time, Hong Kong's comprehensive logistics solutions and sophisticated infrastructure give local e-commerce companies certain unique advantages.

What are the current e-commerce trends that businesses should be aware of? How can SMEs access the markets in Mainland China and Southeast Asia? How can SMEs learn from the success of bigger companies in developing e-commerce strategies?

Join us on 6 October, when experts from Fung Omni Services and Lazada will share their insights on the e-commerce trends in the Asian market. Representative from a SME company will also join the panel and share his story of developing a successful e-commerce business.
