Pingnan E-Business Park started operation on Dec 1, with a goal of forming an industry chain and creating a sound environment, reported the Fujian Daily.

To support e-business, the county's financial department will bear the costs, including those for renovation of public areas and rental expenses.

In addition, free training, reception, and exhibition rooms are accessible to all e-business companies in the park.

This August, the Pingnan government made a deal with Alibaba to foster online business.

According to Ali Research Institute, Pingnan had the 26th highest e-commerce development index among Fujian's counties in 2014 and the 152nd highest nationwide – with a lot of room for growth.

To speed up e-commerce, the local government will allot 2 million yuan each year from 2015 to 2017.

This October, Pingnan announced that it would set up a special fund to subsidize training, research projects, investment and financing in the sector.
