"Chongqing has a strong industrial base," said Xu Zhijun (Eric Xu), Rotating and Acting Chairman of Huawei. "We have cooperated in multiple important areas in recent years, and Huawei is confident in Chongqing's development."

According to the framework, Chongqing and Huawei will work together to create an industrial chain of intelligent connected vehicles, and deepen cooperation in artificial intelligence, smart cities, industrial Internet, and enterprise digital transformation, to boost the city's industrial transformation and the development of strategic emerging industries.

Huawei has been investing in Chongqing's industrial transformation in recent years. Intelligent connected vehicles and big data are the two primary targets for the company.

In 2021, Huawei announced its cooperation with Seres, a local young smart vehicle producer born from a traditional vehicle company. The two companies agreed to build a new smart vehicle brand using Huawei's intelligent connected system and store as the marketing channel. This solved the problems for Seres, which had trouble selling its cars nationwide.

Combining the two companies' power, AITO made its first public appearance at the end of 2021. Three months later, it started to deliver cars and soon broke the Chinese record for delivering 10,000 cars in the shortest time. In the whole year of 2022, AITO has delivered over 75,000 cars.

Other Chongqing smart vehicle producers also recruited Huawei's strength. In August 2022, AVATR, jointly built by Changan, Huawei, and CATL, was officially launched. The company plans to release four models before the end of 2025.

As for the big data industry, in 2019, Chongqing and Huawei established the Kunpeng Computing Industry Ecological Chongqing Center, also known as Kunpeng Chongqing Center. 

The center's mission is to take the Kunpeng processor, Huawei computing industry's main engine, as the core, cultivating a group of Kunpeng computing industry upstream and downstream enterprises in combination with Chongqing's advantageous industries.

According to Shangyou News, Kunpeng Chongqing Center has served 1,020 partners in Chongqing, including governments, manufacturers, financial units, and Internet operators. 

Kunpeng Chongqing Center communicated with more than 30 universities and vocational schools in Chongqing and carried out more than 60 training camps, certification training activities, competitions, college tours, and salons, helping to cultivate local big data talents.

Furthermore, Huawei also joined the city's 5G network construction and provided cloud services to over 800 local companies.
