Walmart in China

Walmart International operates in 26 countries outside of the United States through its wholly owned subsidiaries. The company began its operations in China in 1996 as one of the first big international brands to enter the country. To adjust to Chinese consumer needs, Walmart formed a strategic alliance with, China’s second largest e-commerce retailer, in 2016. E-commerce retail was forecasted to account for about 44 percent of total retail sales in China in 2020.

Growing popularity of fresh food online retail in China made Walmart broaden their delivery capabilities to meet the same-day delivery demand. In July 2019, Walmart announced their plans to invest around 1.2 billion U.S. dollars in China over the next decade, upgrading the company’s logistics centers and delivery services.

In fiscal year 2021, Walmart International expected to open around 250 new stores outside of the U.S., primarily in Central America and China.
