Bigger, Better Sourcing Online

Bigger, Better Sourcing Online

The highly successful online sourcing platform that has been the first choice of smart buyers for the past nine years is now bigger and better than ever.

The Hong Kong Trade Development Council has revamped and relaunched tdctrade.com sourcing at http://sourcing.tdctrade.com with several significant enhancements designed to making sourcing even easier for local and overseas buyers alike.

These include:

  • a substantially increased supplier database
  • enhanced search functions
  • a global network that significantly shortens download time
  • the launch of a simplified Chinese-character version

The refinements will ensure that tdctrade.com sourcing remains the most rewarding online sourcing solution, offering the fastest and most accurate search engine, TDC head of publications and e-commerce Clare Wong says.

"The enhanced platform provides the most in-depth company information and a comprehensive database of suppliers and buyers and customer-oriented services that make doing business even easier than before," Wong insists.

She says tdctrade.com sourcing is a Hong Kong-based sourcing platform that provides added value in the form of international connections and world-class business knowledge, and acts as a gateway to the Chinese mainland.

"It also leverages the TDC's extensive network of 40 overseas offices, ensuring it is the natural choice for buyers who want to do business in Asia in general and Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland in particular," Wong adds.

She notes that tdctrade.com sourcing had 594,731 registered buyers as at July 31, 2005, as certified by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, and over 35 million company records were retrieved from August 1, 2004 to July 31, 2005.

Most visitors are from the Americas (56%), with the rest split between Australia, the Middle East and South America. "Some 26% of members are importers, 18% are wholesalers and retailers or distributors, 16% are manufacturers and 15% are exporters, providing a comprehensive balance that meets the needs of all business sectors," Wong maintains.t tdctrade.com sourcing had 594,731 registered buyers as at July 31, 2005, as certified by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, and over 35 million company records were retrieved from August 1, 2004 to July 31, 2005.
