Chengdu and Chongqing to Advance Modern Industrial Cooperation - National Plan

By VIVIAN YANICHONGQING|Oct 31,2021

The master plan for the Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle takes “collaborative construction of a modern industrial system” as an important task and “a new round of scientific and technological revolutions and industrial chain reconstruction” as an opportunity.

Industrial prosperity will ensure a booming economy. Following the concept of integrated development, Chongqing is carrying out industrial cooperation with Sichuan in a bid to provide solid industrial support for building a strong and distinctive Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle.

Advanced manufacturing

According to the master plan, Chengdu and Chongqing should accelerate the development of advanced manufacturing from four aspects: optimizing the layout of major productivity, fostering advanced manufacturing clusters with international competitiveness, undertaking industrial transfer, and integrating and optimizing major industrial platforms.

At present, the leading industries in the Chengdu-Chongqing area are highly related and complementary. The focus of cooperation lies in the automobile and electronic information industries and the characteristic industries with national competitiveness like equipment manufacturing.

Chongqing should seize this opportunity and work with Sichuan to improve the “map” of the industrial chains in the two places, focus on connected automated vehicles and new energy vehicles, and build high-level research, development, and manufacturing base for the automobile industry.

In particular, the city should fully leverage the leading role of Liangjiang New Area, deepen the collaborative interaction of key parks, and advance the launch of multiple policies and the co-construction of service systems for various development zones and industrial clusters.

Digital economy

It is necessary to accelerate the construction of 5G networks and build new-generation information infrastructure to facilitate the advantages of the new digital economy. Chongqing and Chengdu should improve the “cloud, network, big data, cloud computing and application” element cluster and the industrial chain of “chips, LCD panels, intelligent terminals, core components, and Internet of Things” to create a new highland for the digital industry.

In addition, they need to facilitate the sharing of government data resources, actively expand digital applications, enhance the security protection capability and improve the digital security level.

Chongqing is responsible for these tasks and will benefit from them. The city should continue the acceleration of digital industrialization and industrial digitization, promote the deep integration of the real and digital economies, and strive to construct a powerhouse of smart manufacturing and a famous smart city.

Modern service industry

Furthermore, promoting the integrated development of advanced manufacturing and service industries and improving the development level of trade and logistics, Chengdu and Chongqing will jointly build the western financial center and continuously cultivate new growth drivers.

In recent years, Chongqing has made great progress in the service industry, which has become increasingly prominent in economic and social development.

Chongqing should ride on the moment and keep improving the service level of the manufacturing industry and the value of the whole industrial chain.

The city needs to strengthen the functions of national logistics hubs, support Wanzhou and other districts or counties to build regional logistics centers, and accelerate the improvement of multimodal international logistics service networks.

Also, the Smart China Expo and the Western China International Fair for Investment and Trade should be organized at a high level, thus facilitating the creation of a group of professional convention and exhibition brands.

Only by taking multiple measures simultaneously can the city continuously improve the competitiveness and influence of its services.

Agricultural industry

The construction of the Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle has brought great opportunities for agricultural development.

Chongqing is slated to promote high-quality development of agriculture and strengthen scientific and technological support for the industry.

It will construct a modern, high-efficiency demonstration area of featured agriculture in the Chengdu-Chongqing area, a national high-tech industry demonstration area for agriculture, and an international industrial park for agricultural products processing.

Chongqing has great potential as it has integrated metropolises, vast rural areas, large mountainous areas, and big reservoir areas.

The city will develop modern high-efficiency agriculture with its mountainous characteristics, create advantageous industrial clusters of Tongnan’s lemon and other products, build the state-level Chongqing (Rongchang) Pig Big Data Center and improve the agricultural quality and efficiency.
