To date, the center has introduced more than 600 brands, including such famous international names as Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Louis Vuitton and Prada. More than 100 international frontline brands all chose Chengdu as their first port of call to enter the markets of the Southwest China.
"I am a fan of Chengdu, for its rich traditional culture, for its metropolitan atmosphere," said a diplomat at the South Korean Consulate in Chengdu.
He mentioned his experience having dinner with his family at Chengdu International Finance Square, saying, "It's just like New York City."
On January 13, the local government announced the goal to build Chengdu into a world class central commercial city by 2022, at a conference to guide the city's services industry.
A total of 11 key projects, including Tianfu Jincheng, Tianfu Center and Tianfu Olympic City, are set to meet the diverse demands of customers.
To build itself into a high quality, harmonious and livable city, Chengdu has decided to promote the development of consumer services industry.
It has set itself the goal that by 2022, the added value of the consumer services industry in Chengdu will hit a massive 500 billion yuan ($768.32 billion).
