BEIJING, Dec. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Diane Wang, DHgate.com founder and CEO and Chair of the APEC CBET Network named Wenzhou-Kean University as the Primary Academic Partner Institution of the APEC CBET Network. This announcement comes less than a month after the successful launch of the APEC CBET eLearning Platform at the APEC Lima summit, which was co-developed by ABAC (APEC Business Advisory Council) and Wenzhou-Kean University.
The development of the APEC CBET eLearning Platform was headed by the dean of the business school at Wenzhou-Kean University, Dr. Cao Jiang. The purpose of the platform is to be a place for SMEs (small-and-medium sized enterprises) to obtain the most professional, practical, and localized cross-border e-commerce knowledge, skills, and entrepreneurial guidance in the field of cross-border e-commerce. As the primary academic partner of the APEC CBET Network, it will be the responsibility of Wenzhou-Kean University to continue to expand the eLearning project with academic content and support. The eLearning platform currently features 2 course modules produced by Wenzhou-Kean University researchers and industry experts that award students with electronic certificates upon successful completion: Introduction to Cross-Border E-commerce, and Trust and Safety in Cross-Border E-commerce.
"We are very pleased with the academic, managerial, and production related contributions of Wenzhou-Kean University toward the development of the APEC CBET eLearning platform, without their expertise in these areas, attaining the final product in the allotted time frame would not have been possible. We will continue to work together in the future to improve and expand our initiative to empower SMEs to access global markets through cross-border e-commerce."
