Online marketplace will increase trade between Indian businesses & open an Indian e-commerce gateway to global supply chains
April 24th, 2015: The Confederation of Indian Industry today announced the launch of a new online business gateway for its members. The e-commerce platform will enable Indian businesses to promote their products and services, expand their boundaries and trade online, within India, across the region, and globally. The marketplace is powered by the secure technology platform from cloudBuy, the global e-commerce solution provider.
TT Ashok, Chairman, CII National SME Council, said, “We are pleased to be able to bring this e-commerce gateway to global supply chains to CII members. They are invited to list their company, products and services and trade securely online. We have made sure that the marketplace has low transaction costs and delivers fast payments direct to sellers’ bank accounts. We believe the initiative is a simple way to increase visibility. It will provide Indian businesses with a new gateway to the world.”
