During the period, the added value of industrial enterprises above a designated size, those with annual sales of 20 million yuan ($2.83 million) or more, fell by 3.3 percent year-on-year, a decrease that was less than that of the country and the province by 10.2 and 3.8 percentage points, respectively.

The city's investment in fixed assets (excluding rural households) decreased by 4.8 percent year-on-year, a decrease which was less than that of the country and the province by 19.7 and 26.1 percentage points, respectively.

Sales of basic household products accelerated. Sales of grain, oil, and food products amounted to 4.45 billion yuan, an increase of 21 percent compared with the previous corresponding period.

Retail sales through the internet came in at 6.85 billion yuan, an increase of 27 percent year-on-year, accounting for 24.5 percent of total retail sales.

The city's total imports and exports hit 53.47 billion yuan during the period, a year-on-year decrease of 2.5 percent.
