In recent years, the growth of traditional trade in Heilongjiang province lacks adequate driving forces.

II. Enlightenments and suggestions: First, we need to actively cultivate new growth momentum for the development of foreign trade. As cross-border e-commerce is a typical "Internet Plus" industry, enterprises of different countries could directly deal with global clients through the swift and efficient e-commerce platforms and international logistics. They display products and communicate with customers on the e-commerce platforms and promptly respond to customers’ needs upon their request. Consequently, cross-border e-commerce enjoys broad market space and good prospects for development. Second, we need to make great efforts to develop cross-border e-commerce service industry. In the process of developing cross-border e-commerce, and expanding and deepening the e-commerce applications, various provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities should attach importance to and support the development of cross-border e-commerce service industry, by optimizing the service system and improving the level of facilitation. Third, various provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities need to develop cross-border e-commerce in light of their own basic conditions, cultivate market competitiveness with targeted measures and strive to form their own characteristics and advantages.
