For the third straight year, Chongqing tops the list of cities in China for its nighttime economy, according to a report released on the launching ceremony of the 2022 Chongqing Nightlife Festival at Grand Theatre Square on Friday night.

The nighttime economy refers to business activities that take place between 6 pm and 6 am in the service sector, including shopping, catering, entertainment and leisure. It is a new force in China's economy.

Since 2019, authorities nationwide have beefed up measures to develop the nighttime economy and encourage post-dusk business activities and later closing hours at museums and art galleries.
