Secretary, Mr Lin Yi, and his party, first visited UNPay's office in Beijing
last month. During the meeting, Secretary Lin saw potential in UNPay's vision
and capabilities and recommended Zhejiang China Commodity City Group to work
with the latter in developing Yiwu into a leading hub of international trade.
Secretary Lin observed that with cross-border payment at the core of
international trade activities, it is imperative to work with a company that
has an extensive payment network. Doing so will help propel Yiwu into the
global limelight as a best-in-class online and offline trading platform.
Zhenghua, founder and CEO of UNPay, expressed, "Currently there is no platform
in the world that truly supports a one-stop global payment and financial
service platform for cross-border e-commerce and foreign trade. If the existing
cross-border trade transaction model can be optimised into an offline
cooperation, with online trading and payment, a new cross-border O2O ecosystem
will be established."
Zhang added, "In future, UNPay will also deepen its cooperation with Yiwu
Municipal Government and Yiwu Mall Group on the Belt and Road Initiative, by
harnessing its fintech capabilities to transform Yiwu into the small commodity
capital of the world."
