Earlier this month, the 11th summit of the G20 major economies (which account for nearly 85 percent of the world’s economic output) concluded in Hangzhou, reaching extensive consensus on leading world economic growth. For two days, leaders exchanged views on global economic and financial governance, robust international trade and investment, and inclusive and interconnected development. They also addressed challenges impacting the global economy, including climate change, refugee, anti-terrorism, financing and public health.
As the host venue for the G20 summit, Hangzhou welcomed the many important guests. Earlier this year, Hangzhou saw the opening of its second Shangri-La property, located in the Xiacheng Business District within steps of the city’s gorgeous West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage site. In addition, Hangzhou is home to international hotel properties from Hilton, Marriott, and Hyatt. Looking to the future, Hangzhou will host the 2022 Asian Games and take its place on the world stage once again.
Hangzhou offers pristine natural beauty, well-preserved historical attractions, a vibrant culture and modern amenities for today’s global traveler. Now that the G20 summit has concluded, consider adding Hangzhou to one of your China itineraries for your clients.
