On July 28, President of Beijing Municipal Institute of City Planning & Design Mr. Shi Xiaodong attended the 2021 Wangfujing Forum, where he delivered a keynote speech titled “Combination and Co-Prosperity of Commerce and Culture in Urban Renewal”.

Named after the century-old Golden Street, the Wangfujing Forum came into being as the country embraces a “dual circulation” development pattern and upgrades its domestic consumer market. The Forum aims to serve government leaders, business elites, and research Institutions, experts and scholars by building a high-level dialogue platform for cutting-edge issues related to domestic and external consumptions. Dozens of participants from government, business, academia, and research institutions attended the Forum and engaged in in-depth exchanges of views on how the new development pattern of “dual circulation” transforms consumption; how to boost consumption in the post-epidemic era; how to build Beijing into an international consumption center and advance the construction of the “Two Zones” and the “Cultural Golden Triangle”.

In his keynote speech, Shi Xiaodong explained five features of commercial renewal for the city. Facing with new consumption patterns, cities must have strategic visions and utilize the power of urban culture, and cultivate the city into an influential consumption center through renewal. Cities must adhere to systemic planning and advance the combination of commerce and culture via comprehensive governance. Cities also need to bear in mind feasibility of renewal plans and integrate resources to advance the co-prosperity of culture and commerce. President Shi proposed thirteen strategies for integrated development of culture and commerce via urban renewal projects. 

The invitation of the Wangfujing Forum demonstrates the social recognition the Institute has gained with its expertise in practical work and researches. Against the general background of urban renewal, Beijing Municipal Institute of City Planning & Design will further leverage the experience it accumulated in Beijing’s Wangfujing Street and CBD, grasp with the opportunities of the nation’s strategy in upgrading consumption and building Beijing into a global center for business consumption, actively meet various challenges and empower the continuous development of Beijing.
