The final contest was divided into two sections – a 2-minute keynote speech on the theme of “Better Quality, Better World” and 1-minute impromptu speech. Contestants engaged in heated discussions on topics such as logistics, cross-border business, e-commerce development in Southeast Asia, the future of offline retail, O2O, opportunities and challenges during pandemic, and more. Two contestants from Indonesia and the U.S. joined remotely.
After a fierce competition, Yiming Jiang from JD.ID won the first place, Gao Jiaqi from cross-border business unit and Pei Moran from JD Central won the second place.
