China Rediscovers Glitz in Luxury Goods
Chinese spending on personal luxury goods grew 20% in 2017, reversing three years of slowing consumption, according to a report by consultancy Bain & Co.
Reasons for the reversal include government policies to encourage domestic consumption and restrictions on “daigou” services — those in which a Chinese person living abroad buys items on someone else’s behalf and has them delivered to China.
