As per the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology reports, these enterprises collectively generated profits reaching 180.2 billion yuan ($25.38 billion) during the period.
However, notwithstanding this impressive growth in profit, the combined operating revenue of these firms experienced a marginal decline of 0.8 per cent from 2022, settling at 4.70 trillion yuan, further added the reports.
In parallel, China’s textile and garment exports faced a decrease of 8.1 per cent in 2023, amounting to $293.6 billion compared to the previous year.
