Retail sales of consumer goods in urban areas rose 18.7 percent to 9.6 trillion yuan, while the retail sales in rural areas rose 15.8 percent to 1.5 trillion yuan, according to the NBS.

The catering sector reported total revenues of 1.26 trillion yuan, up 17.6 percent year on year, while the retail goods trade was 9.84 trillion yuan, up 18.4 percent from a year earlier.
