E-com­merce en­ter­prises pledge to pri­or­i­tize hon­esty

China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

to re­ward trust­wor­thy sellers and pun­ish the dis­hon­est in a timely man­ner, as well as to in­crease co­op­er­a­tion and share re­lated data re­gard­ing such ef­forts with each other.

“Be­ing hon­est is our tra­di­tional virtue and a cru­cial part of core so­cial­ist val­ues,” said Zhao Hui, the fed­er­a­tion’s sec­re­tary-gen­eral. “With quick de­vel­op­ment of the net­work, how to im­prove on­line trust has be­come more im­por­tant.”

China was home to 802 mil­lion in­ter­net users by the end of June.

“When we en­joy on­line shop­ping, re­ceive on­line ed­u­ca­tion and be­gin on­line med­i­cal care, some dis­hon­est be­hav­iors, such as ru­mors and fake ad­ver­tise­ments, in cy­berspace also harm our in­ter­ests and make the on­line en­vi­ron­ment dis­or­dered,” Zhao said. “That’s why trust should be ad­dressed con­stantly and on­line re­tail­ers should join the cam­paign ur­gently.”

She said China’s first E-Com­merce Law, passed by the coun­try’s top leg­is­la­ture on Aug 31, stressed cred­i­bil­ity “while pro­vid­ing e-com­merce ser­vices as a ba­sic prin­ci­ple”.

Long Baozheng, JD’s vi­cepres­i­dent, said the agree­ment will im­prove aware­ness of trust in the op­er­a­tions of e-com­merce plat­forms.

“All third-party on­line re­tail­ers must prom­ise not to cheat con­sumers if they at­tempt to con­duct busi­ness on our plat­form,” he said.

Be­ing hon­est is our tra­di­tional virtue and a cru­cial part of core so­cial­ist val­ues.”
