Belarus launches national pavilion on Chinese online platforms Jingdong, Douyin

MINSK DISTRICT, 6 July (BelTA) – A ceremony to open Belarus' national pavilion on the Chinese online platforms Jingdong and Douyin took place in the China-Belarus industrial park Great Stone on 6 July. The event was timed to the 30th anniversary since Belarus-China diplomatic relations were established, BelTA has learned.

Representatives of the industrial park said the launch of the national pavilion practically signifies the start of Belarusian electronic commerce on the Chinese market. In addition to the trade functionality of these platforms Chinese users will be able to discover places of interest, culture and traditions, wonders of nature and history of Belarus. Various videos will be published to highlight attractive peculiarities of Belarus for the Chinese audience, the source said.

The event is an initiative of the China-Belarus industrial park Great Stone. The initiative is intended to stimulate trade cooperation between the two countries. The project is designed to step up economic activity and advance bilateral trade.

According to Chinese statistics, in the initial period of establishment of the diplomatic relations in 1992 Belarus-China trade was only $61 million. Thirty years later the figure has increased by 62 times and has reached $3.8 billion while there is still a huge potential for growth.

The launch of Belarus' national pavilion is another measure taken by the China-Belarus industrial park Great Stone to realize the Belarus president's directive No.9 on advancing Belarus-China bilateral relations of 3 December 2021. The launch will help popularize the Belarusian goods that match preferences of Chinese consumers and meet requirements of the Chinese market. It will facilitate their free and fast access to the Chinese market. It will increase the status of the China-Belarus industrial park Great Stone as an object of trade and economic cooperation and will lay a solid foundation for further expansion of Belarus-China cooperation, the industrial park's representatives said.
