Prime Location – China’s booming economy has contributed to the robust growth in jewellery demand globally. As the leading city in the Yangtze River Delta Region, Shanghai has developed into the region’s core trading hub.
Robust Luxury Market – Retail sales in Shanghai reached RMB870 billion (around US$137 billion) in 2014. As a cosmopolitan city, Shanghai has a large population of high-net-worth individuals who have developed a sophisticated taste for luxury goods. Jewellery consumption, as a result, remains robust.
Ideal Business Environment – Shanghai’s proximity to the major population centres in China has made it an ideal gateway to various potential markets. Its well-developed infrastructure and comprehensive business facilities also make the city a great springboard for the jewellery trade.
