In recent years, the Ministry of Commerce, together with relevant departments, has given full play to the advantages of connecting domestic and foreign business, connecting urban and rural areas, and connecting production and sales. It has contributed to the construction of a unified national market.

  Sheng Qiuping also mentioned that the integration of domestic and foreign trade is steadily advancing.

First, the scale of domestic and foreign markets is growing, and my country has become the world's second largest consumer market and the largest trader of goods.

Second, the integrated management system of domestic and foreign trade has basically been formed. my country has gradually established a domestic economic management system that is connected with the international economic and trade rules system. The laws and regulations of domestic and foreign trade have been continuously improved, and the barriers to market access and cross-border flow of goods have been greatly reduced. Services continue to improve.

Since 2013, it has become the world's largest online retail market for nine consecutive years, and online shopping users have experienced explosive growth within a decade.

The express delivery service industry has developed rapidly. Last year, it exceeded 100 billion pieces, nearly 20 times that of 2012. The business volume ranks first in the world.

Promoting the high-level unification of commodity and service markets is conducive to enhancing consumer confidence, expanding consumer demand, and providing basic support for the in-depth implementation of the strategy of expanding domestic demand and enhancing the resilience of my country's economic development.

Accelerating the promotion of institutional openings such as standards and rules is conducive to enhancing the attractiveness of global advanced resource elements, promoting better connectivity between the domestic market and the international market, and enabling my country to gain new advantages in international competition and cooperation.
