is not the ability of each electricity supplier platform, the need for capital investment and resource integration capabilities. 2012 the beginning of the first half of the investment bank’s friends to chat, they talked about this year, Jingdong mall and Alibaba inevitable war.
here is one of the reasons to seize the market opportunities, the two is the Jingdong need to enter the open platform that can bring profits, and just for the Alibaba, you will need the Tmall brand independent, strengthen the concept of B2C, grab the user to the merchant market trust and Jingdong.
