As China enters the Late Industrialization, the 13th FYP period will see a major trend towards the overall and rapid growth of over 1.3 billion people’s service consumption, while the consumption pattern is upgrading from material consumption to service consumption.

The key is to promote investment transformation and achieve a dynamic balance between investment and consumption.
