Since the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle was first proposed on January 3rd, 2020, as part of a national strategy to achieve high-quality development as well as creating an open inland strategic high ground in Western China. The twin city economic circle has focused on a wide variety of areas for deeper integration and sharing of resources.
Promoting the construction of the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle is a crucial move to foster a new development pattern that takes the domestic market as the mainstay while allowing domestic and foreign markets to boost each other.
It aims to turn the Chengdu-Chongqing area, which is in southwestern China, into an important economic center, a center for scientific and technological innovation, a new highland for reform and opening up, a livable place with a high quality of life, and a crucial driver of the country’s high-quality development.
Although the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle was proposed less than a year ago, there has already been a gigantic and substantial increase in cooperation and exchange across a whole range of fields, and all walks of life.
