More diversity in night economy sought

Introducing more diversity into the local night economy was among a raft of proposals submitted to the Shanghai Committee of Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference yesterday.

Night economy zones in the city lack unique features, and statistics reveal that 60 percent of night-time businesses center on dining, while the rest are mostly on film, KTV, sports and cosmetology, said the proposal filed by local advisers Luo Shanying and Huang Chunhua.

The themes of different night economy areas can be developed based on location and timing.

During the China International Import Expo, imported food and commodity night markets can be hosted, while crayfish and strawberry festivals can be launched in different seasons, the advisers suggest.

Night book fairs can be hosted on Daxue Road in Yangpu District as the area hosts a number of universities, while festivals catering to sports fans can be organized during big events such as the World Cup and Olympics.
