With the rise of smartphones and technology that provide ease of access to the internet, e-commerce has become more important that ever. China has become a world leader in this industry with a market that accounts for more than 40 percent of global retail e-commerce.  
Join the Global Initiatives Council to hear from Humphrey Ho, managing partner of Hylink USA, as he provides an overview of the booming e-commerce market in China and examines the opportunities and lessons that can be learned from their immense market successes. He will also discuss the implications of the changing infrastructure of domestic and cross-border e-commerce. 
The Global Initiatives Council works to create employment opportunities throughout Southern California by increasing exports, imports and foreign investment for companies of all sizes, and for the communities in which they conduct business.
