Spread Your Wings
« on: June 10, 2013, 09:38:06 AM »
Much has been said recently of the opportunities that lie in emerging retail markets, especially in countries or regions that have been less affected by recession or economic slowdown. For many Western companies, however, a lack of confidence and basic local knowledge is stifling opportunity for international expansion.

There are two key markets that I consider to be low-hanging fruit for U.S. merchants: Russia and China.

In Russia, for instance, e-commerce will triple in volume over the next three years from US$12 billion in 2012 to $36 billion by 2015, according to Morgan Stanley in its Russian e-commerce market overview from January 2013.

This year will actually be a turning point for Russian e-commerce, which has been rapidly growing in recent years, the firm says. In 2012, online retail in Russia made up $12 billion and accounted for 1.9 percent of the total $670 billion retail trade in the country.

Let me get this straight - the merchandise *comes from China* - we mark it up and send it back?!?!?  :rotfl The irony. Now that would help with the deficit. Tee hee. Or am I reading this wrong?

Now Russia is another story. They have a mafia, you know.  :o

I've shipped a couple of  "Made in Hong Kong" items to customers in HK before.  :)  And yes, I was chuckling when packing 'em  :-[

Coals to Newcastle anyone? Or would that require an EPA permit?
