The 2022 Huzhou Cross-border E-commerce Talent Summit Forum was held in the city in East China's Zhejiang province on Nov 25.

The event, which was sponsored by the Huzhou Municipal Bureau of Commerce and the Huzhou Municipal Bureau of Human Resources and Social Security, is part of efforts to ramp up cross-border talent cultivation and facilitate local digital economic growth.

Earlier this year, the city set up the Huzhou Cross-border E-commerce College in an effort to introduce more talents in cross-border e-commerce. The college inaugurated three additional campuses in the city on the sidelines of the forum.

Huzhou has seen robust growth momentum in its cross-border e-commerce this year.

In the first 10 months of this year, Huzhou's cross-border e-commerce transaction volume was valued at 25.77 billion yuan ($3.68 billion), 2.7 times that of the same period last year, and 17.7 percentage points higher than the target set for this year.

As of September, there were 1,243 cross-border e-commerce enterprises registered in Huzhou, accounting for nearly one-third of the city's exporting enterprises.

Huzhou is currently home to 2,140 active online stores on cross-border platforms, and has more than 280 registered cross-border e-commerce trademarks and eight provincial-level well-known export brands related to this industry.
