The cloud e-commerce marketplace, cloudBuy, is delighted to announce it has signed an agreement with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) to develop a global trading platform.

The platform will support the trading activities of the 7 000+ CII members globally and within India. The CII members are predominately large manufacturers and this new platform will allow them to utilise cloudBuy's B2B e-commerce and provide a global platform to facilitate their trading.

The new service will be rolled out through the CII's 60+ branches, which will provide support and onboarding services to its members. The service will be chargeable to members and will include Web site and transactional revenues.

Sujith Haridas, Deputy Director General of CII, commented: "This is a very exciting initiative for us and our members. India is one of the world's fastest-growing economies and manufacturing is a key component of this. The new platform will accelerate this growth."

Ronald Duncan, chairman of cloudBuy, commented: "The CII is one of the most respected bodies in Indian business and I'm delighted that it has chosen cloudBuy as its platform for this important initiative.

"Manufacturing and its supply chain is a major part of the rapidly-growing $2-trillion Indian economy and, based on our agreements to date, we expect India to make a significant contribution to our future revenues as we support the Make in India campaign."
