Chongqing aims to build biggest IT manufacturing base in Asia

SINGAPORE - Chongqing, the populous economic hub in southwestern China, never seems to be out of the limelight. After launching a sweeping crackdown on violent gangs last year, the city is now setting its sights on building Asia's largest manufacturing base for information technology (IT) products.

In an interview with China Daily, Chongqing Mayor Huang Qifan expressed his confidence on the prospects for the IT industry, supported by fast-growing demand for computer and communication facilities, even though the overall global output of the IT industry has shrunk some 40 percent amid the global financial crisis.

"Partnering with several big names in IT, such as Hewlett-Packard (HP) and CISCO, Chongqing will soon have an IT industrial cluster with an annual industrial output of some 400 billion yuan ($59 billion)," Huang said on the sidelines of the World Cities Summit in Singapore.

US computer maker HP and world-leading communication technology provider CISCO have established new manufacturing bases in Chongqing, aiming to tap the country's central and western regions.

The HP factory will produce 5 million computers this year and 40 million by 2012, according to Huang.

The IT industrial cluster is only part of the local authorities' effort to build Chongqing, China's largest municipality, into an economic powerhouse in the country's western hinterland.

The city won government approval last month to set up a 1,200 square kilometer special economic zone - Liangjiang New Area, the nation's third of its kind after Shanghai Pudong and Tianjin Binhai.

Located in northern Chongqing, Liangjiang New Area is set to be built into a modern manufacturing base and the premier financial center in western China, and will also serve as a test bed for the country's bold social and economic reforms, such as integrating urban and rural development and public housing reform.

"If Pudong and Binhai are landmarks for China's export-oriented economy, the launch of Liangjiang New Area is a milestone marking the country's decisiveness in opening up inland regions and spurring domestic demand," Huang said.

Indeed, Chongqing's rapid development owes much to the country's strategy of developing western regions, which was initiated 10 years ago aiming to achieve more balanced growth between eastern and western China.

During the past decade, the country invested $100 billion in 23 major infrastructure projects in the western region, which has helped the region's economy grow at an annualized 11.9 percent during the period.

At a national meeting held by the State Council earlier this week, the country's top policymakers pledged to continue the pace of developing China's vast western region, adding new impetus to Chongqing's future development.

"We cannot miss the chance to take advantage of the country's western development strategy, as Chongqing is set to become a key growth engine in western China," Huang said.

Under the city's development roadmap, it plans to quadruple its industrial output to some 4 trillion yuan over the next 10 years, driven by pillar industries including IT, automobile, equipment and machinery manufacturing, he added.

Chongqing Suning Tower. 62~ floors. Likely around 280m including the spire. The Xinhua Tower next to it has 238m, so the roof must be around 250m.

I'm very worried since this is the plot of the Urban Forest tower. I see three possibilities.

1: These are just old renders since there is no info about a Suning tower in Chongqing.

2: They'll build MAD's project somewhere else.

3: They cancelled MAD's project.

China Unicom to invest RMB10 bln in building "intelligent Chongqing"
Xinhua News Agency
17 August 2010

SHANGHAI - China Unicom signed a cooperation framework agreement with Chongqing Municipal Government, vowing to invest 10 billion yuan in the coming five years to support the municipality's information infrastructure construction.

According to the agreement, the two sides will accelerate the construction of "intelligent Chongqing", enhance technical innovation, and boost the development of Chongqing's information service industry.

Besides, China Unicom and the Chongqing government plan to link up its WCDMA 3G technology with near field communication (NFC) technology, absorbing and introducing NFC-related firms into the southwest city.

Industrial experts forecast that the combined output value of Chongqing's NFC industrial alliance will reach 50 billion yuan by 2015.

Integrating NFC with 3G mobile handset will facilitate consumers to use 3G information services and the functions of Internet of Things conveniently.

Architects Woods Bagot and engineering firm Buro Happold have launched a model for large-scale sustainable development, which they say will
‘significantly advance’ the construction industry's contribution to achieving a zero carbon economy by 2050. Details of the project called Zero-
Emissions Design - or Zero-E - were unveiled at the 2010 Bloomberg BusinessWeek Global Green Business Summit in Shanghai. A pilot project will
look at the development potential of an industrial site on the Yangtze River in Chongqing, China.

The test case proposes a 450,000 sq m mixed-use development, featuring an 82-storey office and hotel tower, which will continually monitor
and react to internal and external climatic conditions for maximum performance. While current approaches to sustainable development reduce
the environmental harm caused by the construction and operation of new buildings, ZERO-E goes beyond reducing the impact of new
development to creating buildings that contribute to the healing of compromised human and ecological systems.

The joint initiative follows the UN Compact on climate change and China's commitment, made last November, to reducing carbon dioxide emissions
per unit of GDP by 40-45% by the year 2020, compared with 2005 levels. Ross Donaldson, chief executive of Woods Bagot, said: "The construction
industry has known for some time that increasing the sustainability of buildings and cities is key to turning the tide on climate change. The Zero-e
pilot project confirms that using the expertise and tools available to us today far greater advances in building performance-those that comprise
zero emissions design-are currently within the industry's capabilities. This initiative is not only an entirely new model for sustainable design, it is
also a call to action and an invitation to our development and construction partners to join us as we lead the way to a sustainable future."

Gavin Thompson, Buro Happold's managing director, added: "As an industry we must take urgent steps to change the planning, design and
construction of the built environment if we are to help deliver a zero carbon global economy. Zero-e demonstrates the power of combining our
significant expertise, blurring the boundaries between architect and engineer and represents a watershed moment for our industry."
