Next, we will discuss the price transmission from the perspective of suppliers. Withthe global financial tsunami directly leading to significantly shrunken trade volume, itis truly a thorny problem to retain customers while continuing to make profit andreducing risks and losses in such an environment. To maintain its normal operation,supplier may adjust prices of its products or accept orders and deposit foreignexchange if rates of exchange fluctuate narrowly, waiting for further stabilization andrebounding of exchange rate. They look like those who are bundled to stockspurchased at high prices and wait for being unbundled and reducing loss. Prices of products from suppliers will be influenced by that of raw materials. It can not beignored that the crisis directly makes many small-and-middle-sized enterprises (SMEs)go bankrupt, or stand on the verge of bankruptcy, or reduce their employees. As anInternet trade platform, Alibaba, which has a close relationship with those SMEs, saidthat the next few years will be a winter in its operation. A lot of SMEs get orders,generally small ones, through Alibaba. Due to the crisis, there are no longer any smallorders from Alibaba for those SMEs. With the economic depression caused by the crisisensuing the global inflation and big ups and downs of price, the lack of orders hasdirectly led to huge loss of SMEs, especially for those who focus on export trade. As aresult, there is a bankruptcy upsurge of SMEs that operate on a high-cost-and-low-price basis. The bankruptcy and shrinkage of SMEs have directly affected the proceedsof Alibaba that mainly provides services for SMEs. Considering this point, the financialcrisis also leads to early coming of the winter of Internet Business-to-Business E-commerce. Internet E-commerce seeks for breakthroughs in a new operational modewhile waiting for its spring.
