HANGZHOU, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- Chinese shoppers spent big over the Singles' Day shopping festival, showing the country's strong economic recovery following the COVID-19 epidemic.

More than 800 million shoppers, 250,000 brands and 5 million merchants participated in this year's shopping spree, according to Tmall.
