Recently, China’s e-commerce has entered a period of rapid development. The government has also shown their support towards this advancement in the financial sector. Therefore, a study to analyze the effect of cross-border e-commerce on international trade of emerging countries in the case of China has been proposed. Pearson correlation coefficient is used as the research methodology to study the relationship between the two variables. There are not many literatures which focus on the impacts of e-commerce toward International trade. Cross-border e-commerce is of great significance to emerging countries’ development. The result of this research shows that there is no significant relationship between cross-border e-commerce and international trade in the case of China. One possible cause of this is the lack of data as cross-border e-commerce is relatively new. Therefore, further research has to be carried out to find out the underlying relationship of these 2 variables which will help the government in taking beneficial measures for the country’s future international trade development.
