Now we see that things are being made easier.”His idea is to make the most of Salvadoran coffee in China and the countrys booming online retail sales. As of June this year, the number of Chinese consumers online reached 749 million, or 79.7 percent of the countrys total internet users, according to a report by the China Internet Network Information Center.During the Singles Day in November, the Chinese version of Black Friday, Alibabas e-commerce platform Tmall registered as many as 583,000 orders in a single second, according to the company.”China is developing this world-renowned technology that is making life easier for countries in the way we do business, in logistics, in the entire issue of payments, in the issue of export, and in, of course, the two-way information,” Hernandez said.Coffee is El Salvadors star agricultural product, with more than 24,000 producers of the beans, most of them small coffee growers with plots of up to 7.5 hectares.While the Central American country might be eclipsed by others with larger production volumes, such as Colombia or Brazil, it specializes in premium coffee and has won over consumers on continents, said Hernandez.Salvadoran producers now seek to attract young Chinese consumers, especially urbanites in Shanghai or Beijing who has gotten accustomed to online shopping via their smartphones.”The young are very dynamic, very active, using social networks, using technology, which is where we want to participate to promote coffee,” Hernandez said.Salvadoran coffee exports to the Chinese market increased since the two countries established diplomatic relations in August 2018, raising Chinas ranking to one of its important destination markets for the aromatic bean.Armando Fontan, manager of the family-owned business Les Fontan, located on mountains of the Ataco town in western El Salvador, believed it is now the right time to seek Chinese online buyers.”We are presented with opportunities that are just around the corner, which 10 or 15 years ago did not exist,” Fontan told Xinhua.var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Wen Ying, Liang Jun)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9804367;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingChinese lawmakers call for measures against unfair online competitionOrange farmer finds new market onlineChina uses blockchain technology to regulate livestreaming e-commerceChina tightens regulations on livestreaming e-commerceChinas Yunnan reports surge in cross-border e-commerceWe RecommendXiongan Railway Station to be put into operation by end of this year
