Saleh Altheeb Alhemeri, Counselor and Head of Economic Affairs of the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in China visited JD.com on Apr. 27 and had a discussion with JD Worldwide, the company’s international business, on bilateral trade, cross-border e-commerce, international logistics and supply chain opening up.
Mr. Saleh Altheeb Alhemeri said that bilateral trade between China and UAE is developing vigorously. Enterprises like JD.com will not only contribute to the growth of the cross-border e-commerce, but also serve to promote in-depth business collaboration between the two countries.

“JD will open up our integrated supply chain services to enable more quality Chinese products to be accessible overseas and to bring more premium UAE products to consumers in China,” said Andy Zhang, head of the Go-to-Market business in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region at JD Worldwide.

Through the partnership, Tradeling will be able to provide business customers in the MENA region with high quality Chinese products leveraging JD’s unparalleled merchandise and logistics advantages.
