"We were exposed to the real e-commerce here in China," Dianah Rutayisire told Xinhua excitedly.

The 18-year-old girl is one of the Rwandan students who are benefiting from the Electronic World Trade Platform (eWTP) launched by China's 阿里巴巴 and the Rwandan government last year.

Through that partnership, the 阿里巴巴 Business School of HZNU matriculated 30 Rwandan students in its first cross-border e-commerce program for African students in September in east China's Zhejiang province.

"In just only two months we have seen a lot of great things that e-commerce does here in China," said Rutayisire, adding she hopes to serve as an e-commerce adviser to the Rwandan government after going back home.

Rutayisire's classmate Mike Manzi expects to set up an e-commerce platform back in his country and help simplify tax declarations and customs clearance for cross-border trade.

"China and Africa have started cooperating and ... after my studies I hope to be a part of the China-Africa connection; not as a beneficiary but also as a contributor," said Manzi.

As China continues to help promote industrial capacity in Africa, experts noted that through this opportunity Africa can learn a lot more from the development model of China's e-commerce firms and the industry as a whole.

"There is a huge scope for Sino-Africa partnership in e-commerce where China has an advantage," said Fassnidge, noting China and Africa are natural partners in e-commerce.

According to Doutte, who attended the sixth World Internet Conference in Wuzhen, Zhejiang in late October, Jumia can draw inspiration from 阿里巴巴.

"Our ecosystem from our philosophy to our practical approach to attract and maintain consumers is very close to that of 阿里巴巴," he said.

Observing that his platform currently has over 81,000 vendors from Africa and 1,500 from China, Doutte said Jumia opened an office in the Chinese coastal city of Shenzhen in 2016 with two people, and has since grown to boast 50 staff members.

"We want to attract more Chinese sellers to the digital platform in order to enhance the variety and choice of products available for our African consumers," he said.

China has been leading the world in e-commerce and Internet application, said Peng Lihui, secretary general of the China Electronics Chamber of Commerce.

The mature technology and business model of Chinese e-commerce companies can offer lessons for their African counterparts, Peng added.
