Driven by the build-out of globalization, integration of the global consumer market, as well as China's wider push for a dual-circulation strategy, more and more cities in China need to rely on a developed consumer market, convenient transportation network, and superior consumption environment to attract consumption resources from all over the world.

As one of the factors driving economic growth, consumption seems more prominent in the dual-circulation pattern. So far, more than 20 cities in China have joined the competition of building international consumption centers.
