China released its master plan for the construction of the Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle in the southwest of the country on October 20.

The Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle is another important regional development strategy, following the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the Yangtze River Delta region, and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

The plan proposes nine key tasks, including building a new pattern for the economic development of the two cities, jointly building a modern infrastructure network, a modern industrial system, a sci-tech innovation center with international influence, an ecological protective fence, a new base for reform and opening-up in the inland regions, and promoting integrated urban-rural development.

Covering about 185,000 square kilometers, the Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle had a permanent population of about 96 million and a GDP of nearly 6.3 trillion RMB in 2019, accounting for 6.9 percent and 6.3 percent of the national total respectively.
