China’s JD.com is no longer certain it will open an office in Germany this year, having previously asserted it was targeting Q1 2019 as a start point for its operations in the market. “As far as I know, there will be no office in Germany in the first half of 2019”, a spokesperson of the retailer stated, adding that new decisions will only be made from the beginning of February.
