BEIJING, 3 June (BelTA - China Daily) - Aiming at building the city into an international consumption center, Beijing will build several commercial area landmarks including another "Sanlitun" by 2025, according to the municipal government on Monday.
The commercial landmarks will be located in the CBD area, Shougang Park, Wukesong area and Lize region, involving Beijing's western, southern and eastern areas.
