As a result, the sales of enterprises, cooperatives and business households expanded 20-50%, with online sales accounting for about 20-30%, and sales through e-commerce platforms 5-10%.
In order to actively promote digital transformation, over the past time, the city's competent agencies have encouraged businesses to assess their level of digital transformation, thus mapping out implementation plans.
