On December 16, 2019, the State Council approved re-designating Wuwei from a county to a county-level city, due to the area's increasing urbanization. Eight months later, The Economist commented on the urbanization, describing that "at the hear of Wuwei, high-rise housing and a glossy white shopping centre sit next to dilapidated alleys where farmers sell live chickens".
In 2018, the city recorded a GDP of 438.2 billion yuan, and retail sales totaling 129.5 billion yuan.
