China’s Liangjiang New Area will become a key trade area that will include an airport, river and rail networks and a bonded port. This was mentioned by Zhang Dejiang, Chinese vice premier and secretary of the CPC Chongqing Municipal Committee in his report on the Fourth Chongqing Municipal Congress of the Communist Party of China. Zhang pointed out that Chongqing will “develop into an open highland of inland China and form an all-directional, multi-layer and wide-ranging platform for opening up the region, which will be lead by Liangjiang New Area”.
Chongqing Liangjiang New Area has attracted attention from transnational enterprises with a high growth rate of more than 20 per cent since its establishment two years ago and it is becoming a global investment hotspot in west China.
