Chongqing- On the morning of October 23, the 2020 Chongqing International Venture Capital Conference held a signing ceremony for a series of 15 financial projects, including the Chengdu-Chongqing Twin City Economic Circle Development Fund and the Chongqing Manufacturing Transformation and Upgrade Fund. In total, the combined value of the signed projects amounted to 67.55 billion yuan.
The contracted projects mainly focus on new-generation information technology, integrated circuits, intelligent manufacturing, healthcare, new energy, and other fields. The aim is to promote synergy between technology, finance, and industry, promote the continued pooling of resources, and boost the Twin-City economy. In turn, the construction of the Economic Circle and the Western Science City will inject further impetus into Chongqing’s development.
Chongqing High-tech Zone, Bishan District, Yufu Holdings, Real Estate Group, and Sichuan Development have jointly invested 30 billion yuan into the Chengdu-Chongqing Twin-City Economic Circle Development Fund, with the main focus on integrated circuits, intelligent manufacturing, and other strategic industries. Asset securitization and the industry-city integration have marked the start of in-depth cooperation between Sichuan and Chongqing in finance and industry.
According to Chongqing High-tech Zone officials, the fund’s establishment is an important measure to promote the construction of the Chengdu-Chongqing Twin City Economic Circle, form an important growth pole for high-quality development, optimize regional economic layout, and create an inland opening strategic highland.
Furthermore, the fund strategy is vital for the construction of Western (Chongqing) Science City, the International Financial Center, and the Science and Technology Innovation Center. It will provide strong support for in-depth and multi-faceted cooperation, as well as the performance of institutions operating in financial investment.
These specifically manifest the integration of state-owned platform companies in Chengdu and Chongqing, constructing the Chongqing High-tech Zone as part of the Twin-City Economic Circle, and in-depth cooperation between the two cities.
According to reports, 10 billion yuan is planned for the initial phase of the development fund, which will function according to market-oriented mechanisms, with a focus on strategic investment in emerging industries such as integrated circuits, smart manufacturing, displays, materials, new energy, and biomedicine in Sichuan and Chongqing.
Service industries such as aviation, tourism, health, and smart cities and new infrastructure will promote coordinated economic development in Chengdu and Chongqing.
This first Twin-City Economic Circle Development Fund will mobilize greater social capital to strengthen the financial support of key projects in Sichuan and Chongqing and provide a boost for quality and efficiency in the real economy.
