American products are huge in China, but since it is such a relevantly new market for Americans, very little have the resources or knowledge on how to get started selling overseas. This is why RepDM partnered up with the Alibaba Group and held Access Asia 2017 Trade Summit in City of Industry, California earlier this year. The main point of Access Asia was to teach American companies how they can sell their products to China through Alibaba. Many companies attended and learned valuable information from this event because of Alibaba representative Josh Jiang. He spoke on Alibaba’s plan to stop counterfeiting, ways to set up stores on Alibaba’s website and much more.
