Euromonitor International: China city tier report

China's macro-economy outpaces the rest of the world, with dynamics varied across cities. 2014 was another banner year for China, which surpassed Japan to become the world's second largest economy in 2010. The country exhibited slower but robust GDP growth at 7.4%, with sources indicating that China has taken the place of the U.S. as the national marketplace receiving the largest amount of direct foreign investment worldwide in 2014. China has devoted itself to an evolving growth structure to promote greater economic traction by expanding domestic consumption and investment, increasing per capita disposable income, and promoting consistently progressive urbanisation with more balanced development between urban and rural areas. These positive factors have been coupled with several reforms concerning resident's livelihoods, in addition to a broadening of investment fields. Overall, these measures have buoyed Chinese consumers' outlook and confidence about the future.
