Alleged Taobao scandal stirs sensation (4)


09:09, May 02, 2012

During the 2012 sessions of the National People's Congress (NPC) and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, NPC deputy Zhou Xiaoguang suggested that legislation regarding online transactions should be made to stipulate rights and obligations of buyers and sellers as well as rules on online transactions and payment platforms.

"Most of Taobao employees I know are warm-hearted and patient, though I have also heard of some corruption cases," a "Qianqianxue," who sells women's dresses on Taobao, told Xinhua in an online interview.

The company's courage to confront its own problems is praiseworthy, but a better oversight system is needed to solve the problems and promote the healthy development of the company, she said.
