E-commerce Summit with Alibaba and others in Hangzhou, October 2014Nov 02 2014 · Events
Matti Hamalainen was appointed as the Honorary Commissioner the Chinese E-Commerce Development Advisory Committee initiated by Hangzhou Municipal Government, Boao Forum for Asia, China National Economic Research Institute and Peking University HSBC Business School. The aim is to provide advice for the future of Chinese – and international – e-commerce by promoting development and communication of this rapidly evolving industry. It is now starting to move from selling products and services to becoming the driver that transforms old industries and creates new ones – and thus also makes it possible to address growing societal challenges around the world that have been extremely difficult to respond in fast enough way by conventional means and ways of organizing the work. One of the key elements for this is the appreciation and access to Everday Life Data that will be based on trust, transparency and open approaches. Thus, there is a direct connection to the ISeeLife! Lab that aims at creating and testing new solutions for “Life Driven e-commerce”.
