Chinese Gov Takes on Alibaba
From Red Herring:
"If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then China’s leading B2B e-commerce platform, Alibaba.com, should feel complimented indeed.
On Monday, the China Internet Information Center, a government agency under the State Council Information Office, launched “China Suppliers,” a web site billed as China’s largest government-run e-commerce platform. The site has a pearl of a URL—www.china.cn—and a slick layout.
That layout—along with the site’s list of product categories and all its core functions—is a near-perfect replica of Alibaba’s."
