Who needs a website to do business?

UKTI has launched a programme to boost export on sites such as Tmall China, Amazon China, Rakuten in Japan and Harper’s Bazaar.

It has been created to ensure UK companies can tap into a burgeoning market.

Trade Minister Lord Livingston said: “The UK leads the world in cross-border online sales, but there is still much more we can do to help.

“British business must seize this huge opportunity - with forecasts of three billion online consumers in just three years.

“Trading online is a great way to start exporting to a new country, enhance distribution in an exciting market and effectively sell while you sleep.

“This is why we are launching the UKTI e-Exporting Programme to help businesses thrive abroad in some of the world’s largest markets.

“UK products are great – it’s time to take them to the world.”

More than 100 UK brands have launched in China through an e-marketplace so far.
