Leverage the economic development of the western region

Last year, China’s State Council approved Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Tianjin, and Chongqing to take the lead in developing international consumption center cities.

Chongqing has proposed to build itself into a globally renowned city for its shopping atmosphere, food, exhibitions, tourism, and culture and an international consumption center city with local features that illuminate western China, serving as a lighthouse to South and Southeast Asia.

“Building the international consumption center has become an important point of Chongqing’s urban development. The cultivation and construction work has started well and achieved initial results,” said a Chongqing Municipal Commission of Commerce official.

China’s economy developed rapidly, from the coast to inland in the past decades. The urban agglomeration is no longer the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area, Yangtze River Delta, and the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region. The Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle and the Yangtze river middle reaches region rise rapidly. The Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle connects the Yangtze River Economic Belt and the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor. It will leverage the economic development of the vast western region and become a pioneer of opening-up in inland China, according to the report from JLL released.

The report also indicates that Chongqing, the fourth-highest quality retail property inventory in China, will use Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle to tap its local advantages and achieve consumption breakthrough.

Consumption is the primary driver of economic growth. In the future, Chongqing will continue to attract top property developers to build high-quality landmarks in Chongqing. Chongqing will give the night economy full play and cultivate local commercial brands to facilitate the first store economy and introduce more international brands.

Meanwhile, the urban renewal and community renovation provide diversities for consumption spaces,” said the representative from CCTEG Chongqing Engineering (Group) Co., LTD.
