Chinese express delivery company contributes to Pakistan's cross-border e-commerce.

BEIJING -- China and Pakistan will continue to cooperate in cross-border e-commerce to create more prosperity and happiness between the two countries, said Badar U Zaman, Commercial Counselor of the Pakistan Embassy in China.

Cross-border e-commerce is one of the most important areas for China and Pakistan to achieve success and forge ahead, he recently highlighted.
