e-Commerce in China has seen sensational growth in recent years, with online shopping growing not only for consumer sectors but also for B2B commerce.

Additionally, in response to increasing demand for high-quality products among Chinese customers, especially the China small and medium enterprises (SMEs), the Henkel flagship store on the 1688 platform will give them easier access to its best-in-class services and comprehensive solution portfolio to help their businesses to perform better.
