Posted On March 18, 2019
Following the theme of the 315 gala – reported by CCTV, complaints received by the State Administration for Market Regulation about e-commerce platforms surged 126% in 2018. Hyperbolic advertising and fake goods, as well as malfunction caused by low quality, are some of the main areas of dispute. Considering the tremendous scale of online sales in China, whose volume accounts for almost one-quarter of the total local retail industry, it is imperative for the government to up its efforts to crack down illegal acts in the manufacturing and marketing of fake goods.
