Shanghai moves into shopping via Internet

Published on .

Shanghai is expected to take the lead among large cities in China in experimenting with shopping via the Internet. A pilot started last year in the Luwan District of Shanghai, China's largest commercial and industrial city with more than 12 million permanent residents, and the Xinmin Evening News reports that the Shanghai municipal government plans to complete its "Community Service Network" in two years. The network will let consumers touch the terminal screen to buy goods and services such as commodity products, pharmaceuticals, healthcare services, and household and repair services.
