Once the cradle of China’s modern industry, Shanghai remains a hub of China’s advanced manufacturing industries and strategic emerging industries.

Having formed a service-dominated economic structure, Shanghai boasts a tertiary sector contributing 69.9% of the GDP in 2018. Modern service industries such as finance, trade, and commerce have become major drivers of the city’s development and trade in service has been the national leader for many years, accounting for more than 30% of the national total. The advanced service sector has offered rich and convenient choices to citizens living and working in this city. Just like “Made in Shanghai”, “Service in Shanghai” is also becoming a new hallmark of the city.
