While the majority of online purchases take place in China, the proportion of 'sea Amoy' has risen from 15 per cent in 2015 to 21 per cent in 2017, with the largest increase in cross-border online purchases in the United States. As a result, global cross-border B2C sales reached US$ 4,120, accounting for 11 % of global B2C sales, an increase of 4 % over 2016.

The Secretary-General of UNCTAD, Mukhisa Kituyi, said: 'The latest data suggest that e-commerce is indeed creating opportunities for exports, but from a development perspective, the key question is whether firms in developing countries can seize this opportunity. '


Mr Kituyi said the topics would be discussed at an eCommerce Week meeting in Geneva, the United Nations headquarters in Europe, from 1 to 5 April.
