Synopsis

Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. E-commerce remains a sluggish sector in China, with security concerns and payment methods being major obstacles to wider acceptance. However, the amazing comeback of the major Chinese Web portals in 2003/2004, along with the market’s enthusiasm for search engines into 2005, point to a hopeful future for Chinese e-services. This report provides information on how China is approaching the development of e-services such as e-commerce (including e-commerce spending statistics), e-banking, online gaming and search engines. Major e-services providers such as Sina.com, Sohu.com and NetEase.com are also discussed.
