Today is your last chance to buy the special June issue of One World Magazine on China (if you’re living in the Netherlands, that is:)). I wrote a couple of articles for it. I loved doing research for the piece on Taobao-villages.
Hunger for food safety of China’s city dwellers is satiated in an interesting way by e-commerce businesses in rural villages.

Find out:)!!
