On March 13, Hangzhou relaxed restrictions on outdoor business operation and permitted merchants to expand their business in streets, including carrying out outdoor cultural and commercial activities (outdoor promotion), to boost economy of CBD. However, unlicensed peddlers and vendors are still subject to the restrictions and rules of the original policy.

Compared to indoor dining, street dining and vending bring a more realistic and comfortable experience for consumers. The outdoor cafes among office buildings, the western restaurants in roof gardens, and the interactive scenarios in streets have contributed to the hustle and bustle of life in the city.

Outdoor business operation helps to invigorate urban consumption and unleash the potential of economic growth. The relaxed policy is more flexible in law enforcement and attaches more importance to characteristic consumption scenarios while ensuring orderly business operation. For example, outdoor business operation in many historical and cultural blocks allows well integration of commerce and historical & cultural heritages.
