Calling the Paris office as “an important milestone,” the Chinese firm said “a French presence will give the company an in-depth understanding of the development ambitions of its French partners, who are looking to access the 266.3 million active Chinese consumers on JD.com.”

The e-commerce platform added the office was launched a part of “an ambitious agreement” with Business France, the country’s official trade promotion agency, to sell 2 billion euros (2.45 billion U.S. dollars) of French goods to Chinese consumers over the next two years.

The deal also included “the implementation of a “one-stop shop” solution for French brands and retailers to get their products to Chinese consumers quickly and conveniently,” it said.
