According to reports from China International Import Expo, the Ministry of Commerce is now researching on relevant regulation plans with other agencies concerning retail imports of cross-border e-commerce, and the potential impact during the transitional periods.
As mentioned in the opening speech of the Expo, China will further lower the tax to facilitate the customs clearance, lower the institutional cost of importing, and speed up the development of new business including cross-border e-commerce platform.
On September, 20, 2017, the State Council decided to expand the traditional policies of cross-border e-commerce to the end of 2018. At this moment, china regulates the imported goods via cross-border e-commerce platforms as personal properties. (Source：shuzheng kangxun)
