After a rigorous selection process, Kanina, a Brazilian student from our school, stood out among many contestants and became one of the 25 outstanding students in China selected for the program.

When talking about the feelings of participating in the event, Kanina, a Brazilian student from our school, said: "I am very happy to have this opportunity to have a deeper understanding of Alibaba and China's digital economy development model. Many Brazilians like China very much, and we also hope to be able to Learn Chinese experience, understand Chinese culture, and promote the development of cross-border trade between the two countries. This training will be an experience I will never forget. In addition to getting to know China’s largest Internet company, I also made countless friends who all dreamed of To become a commercial bridge between China and our motherland."
Cross-border live broadcasting is a huge opportunity for Chinese foreign trade companies. Among them are opportunities for Chinese exporters, as well as career development opportunities and entrepreneurial opportunities for overseas students in China. The foreign students coming to China and Chinese foreign trade companies are closely connected at this time! These outstanding people who master Chinese and foreign languages and consumption habits, use social media, and recognize Chinese brands to study in China are the best candidates to help Chinese brands go overseas when the global trade market shrinks under the new crown epidemic and trade protectionism is rising. As cross-border e-commerce enters the era of localized and refined operations, international students in China have gradually become a backup force to promote the smooth flow of Sino-foreign trade.
