Alibaba Research Center, said Chen Liang, a senior expert, the country has about 700000 administrative villages, the village is now found only Taobao, think about this huge potential for development of the 14. But it was also analyzed, Taobao village form are in fact conditions, such as local mostly nothing major industries, the per capita income is relatively low, and there should be some infrastructure, but the logistics cost is not too high, this is also the reason why Shanghai is born in the village of Taobao. There are some local characteristics industrial base, such as a Willow Bay village tradition, Sha town waste plastics processing base, and later developed the production of sheet metal furniture industry. So many villages in China, not every village at the same time meet these conditions. Peking University, director of China social and Development Research Center Qiu Zeqi believes that in the case of farmers have not yet achieved the market, Taobao village to go far difficult. Bay Village willow mainly rely on manual processing, if the use of mechanization, its value may be greatly reduced. It is mainly engaged in weaving the older people, but with this group of old people, who can pick up their class? With the present conditions, the younger generation may not, if you earn the same money in the city and in rural, they will choose to live in the city.
