(People's Daily Online)    16:42, January 08, 2018

Chinese e-commerce giant JD.com recently signed a cooperation agreement with one of Tibetan’s largest agricultural enterprises to help Tibetan agricultural products go global, Xinhuanet.com reported.

According to the agreement, the enterprise will purchase high-quality local agricultural products including eggs, fruits, and vegetables, and then sell them to people around the world through the e-commerce platform provided by JD starting from 2018.

It will not only help the local products to go global, but also increase the sales volume, said Li Yujian, vice mayor of Shigatse in southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region.

JD manager Wang Zhiqiang disclosed that the e-commerce platform has helped impoverished counties in China to sell a total of 15.3 billion yuan ($2.36 billion) worth of products by July 2016. With the platform, agricultural products in Tibet will have a broad sales prospect.

The cooperation will ensure a reliable source of the products on the platform and improve the sales volume of the products and farmers’ income, an all-win outcome for the local government, the enterprise, and the peasant households, Liu Yu, head of the company noted.
