Internet giant Alibaba said Thursday that it has nominated 2,100 new Taobao Villages, where new e-commerce centers would be established for the first time this year.

Taobao Villages are rural e-commerce centers that feature Alibaba's logistics, service and training to encourage farmers to get involved in online retailing.

Alibaba requires villages to have total annual e-commerce transactions of more than 10 million yuan ($1.5 million) and more than 100 online stores to qualify as Taobao Villages.

Alibaba made the announcement on Thursday at the National Forum on Taobao Villages held in Heze, East China's Shandong Province.
