China's service outsourcing industry has grown from scratch, from small to large, thanks to reform and opening up, and to the continuous and in-depth promotion of open economic construction.

Livecom provides services such as communication service solutions, implementation and operation and maintenance for these companies, and further improves the operational efficiency of "going out" enterprises. The construction of "One Belt and One Road" has led to the development and growth of China's service outsourcing and become the highlight of the development of China's service outsourcing industry. The head of the clothing and trade division of the Ministry of Commerce said that in 2017, under the guidance of the "One Belt and One Road" initiative, China and the countries along the border strengthened cooperation in outsourcing services in the fields of information technology, industrial design, engineering and technology, and the amount of implementation was 102 billion 930 million yuan, the first time to break through 100 billion yuan, up by 27.7% over the same period last year, leading the world's leading technologies and standards such as China's high-speed rail, nuclear power, telecommunications and mobile payment.

Li Gang pointed out that to vigorously develop service outsourcing, we need to strengthen exchanges and cooperation in the field of services, need more open and inclusive economic globalization, and need more inclusive, balanced and win-win development. At present, the service industry has become a key area for China to expand its opening up. China is creating a more attractive investment environment, and actively expanding imports and strengthening intellectual property protection. These opening measures will bring greater business opportunities to the service outsourcing industry.
