Why Chongqing & Chengdu​? 

​   As one of China’s fastest-growing cities, and one of its seven free-trade zones, the city has a wealth of untapped potential. 

•   Chongqing is one of the main cities involved in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which will link China to Asia, the Middle East, Africa and ​Europe through a network of roads, railways, port and industrial parks. 

 ​   ​The speed of distribution of goods and services between China and Singapore will be increased by the   new   Chongqing   Connectivity   ​Initiative, a joint project between Singapore and China. A part of the initiative, the Southern Transport Corridor, will see Chongqing connected to Singapore and beyond via sea and railway routes.
