China: China Retail Annual Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CH2022-0088

The COVID-19 pandemic changed the country's retail landscape as e-commerce companies gained ground over traditional brick-and-mortar retailers. Online platforms also extended the reach of imported products into second-and third-tier cities. While the market offers opportunities, global supply chain challenges, and arduous registration requirements for imported products can dampen enthusiasm among some exporters.
