Jiulongpo: Top area for investment in Chongqing
Updated: 2012-07-20 08:03
By Xu Wei (China Daily)

The Jiulongpo district topped all other districts in Chongqing at the 15th China (Chongqing) International Investment and Global Sourcing Fair in May in terms of total investment programs.

During the fair, domestic and foreign enterprises have voiced optimism about the future prospects for the district's development.

"Chongqing has great potential as a hub for the future development of China's western areas. And Jiulongpo is the core area of the municipality, having a good industrial foundation and broad investment prospects. That is the main reason why we decided to invest in the district," said Yao Qiuming, general manager from the China Guangdong Nuclear Power Holding Co Ltd.

"Capital will naturally flow to the areas with better investment environments. Jiulongpo district is showing a very good momentum of development and has abundant business opportunities. We are fully confident about our investment in the district," said Wu Zhaozhai, the director of the board of the Hong Kong-based Chuang'an Group.

Pan Huizhong, manager of the Borui Investment Company, said the district has made a lot of efforts to refine the investment environment for foreign and domestic enterprises and the government has taken the initiative to improve services to enterprises.

The district has emphasized high-tech industries and modern logistics by enacting a series of polices to encourage the development of these sectors.

At this year's International Investment and Global Sourcing Fair, the district government launched four major investment programs at the municipal level.

French retail group Auchan plans to invest $30 million in a retail chain project in the high-tech zone of the district. The Chuang'an Group is going to invest a total of $250 million to build a logistics program in the Hangu township of the district.

Shanghai GM, the joint venture of China's SAIC Motors and General Motors, expects to build its new plants and supporting facilities in the Xipeng industrial park, and China Guangdong Nuclear Power Holding Co Ltd will locate its energy-saving industrial program in the industrial park.

Other investment programs that have been introduced into the district during the fair include the sectors of real estate, finance, trade and education.

Other multibillion-yuan projects include a real estate program signed between Beijing real estate developers and the high-tech zone involving a total investment of 4.5 billion yuan.

The Jiulong Industrial Park will also team with Dalian Wanda Group to build a modern commercial center inside the park.

The Borui Investment Company will provide small loans to enterprises. The company will also introduce strategic investors to encourage a boom in the district's capital market.

Construction near the Chongqing Lianglu/Cuntan Bonded Port.


Photo taken on July 30, 2012 shows the scene of loading goods in Chongqing Lianglu/Cuntan Bonded Port, southwest China's Chongqing Municipality. As China's first inland bonded port, Cuntan bonded area handled over 150,000 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) containers for import and export in the first six months this year, rising 10.6 percent year on year. Up to June, the investment for the bonded area reached 20 billion yuan (about 3.13 billion U.S. dollars) with the sales output value reaching 11.7 billion yuan (about 1.83 billion U.S. dollars).

Photo taken on Aug. 5, 2012 shows the night view of Yuzhong Peninsula in Chongqing Municipality. According to The Urban Blue Book: China City Development Report No. 5, released by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences on Aug. 14, the number of urbanites has surpassed the number of rural residents in China, with the urbanization rate reaching 51.27 percent, a significant change in the country's social structure which ushers in an era of "city-based society".

Yes - Chongqing's climate is fairly damp with little sunshine. It's actually famous for its fog. In the summer, it is also one of the "furnaces" with sky-high temperatures. Finding a clear day there is fairly difficult.

Ford breaks ground on China plant key to growth plans
Mon, Aug 27, 2012

CHONGQING, China (Reuters) - Ford Motor Co will begin making its 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged engine in Chongqing, its manufacturing hub in southwest China, next year, with the second-largest U.S. car maker hoping to catch up with rivals in the world's biggest auto market.

Ford made the announcement at an event in Chongqing on Monday, when its top brass, including Chief Executive Alan Mulally, attended the groundbreaking of a third assembly plant. The engine plant is currently under construction at a separate facility in the same complex.

"Asia Pacific is such a fantastic growth market, and China specifically - even though we've slowed down a little bit, it's still in the 10 percent range, which is a terrific growth rate," Mulally told reporters after the event.

Ford won approval from China this week to break up its three-way tie-up with Japan's Mazda Motor Corp <7261.T> and China's Chongqing Changan Automobile Co Ltd, Mulally said, adding there was no timetable for when it would clinch regulatory approval. Ford has a 35 percent share of that tie-up.

Ford has spent $4.9 billion building factories, adding dealers and launching new models in China since 2006. Success in China is key to meeting Mulally's goal of selling 8 million vehicles worldwide by 2015, up from 5.3 million in 2010.

Ford recognizes it has been too slow to enter the Chinese market. Last year, Ford had 2.5 percent market share in China, while Volkswagen AG held nearly 18 percent and General Motors 10 percent, according to LMC Automotive.

Ford earmarked $600 million to build the third assembly plant in Chongqing, which is expected to open in late 2014. The automaker is also building another plant slated to open in 2015 in Hangzhou for $760 million.

The investments come as the Chinese auto market cools.

Last year, sales rose 2.5 percent, down from 32 percent growth in 2010. Unsold cars are clogging dealer lots, forcing many to offer discounts, though the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers is sticking to its forecast for overall auto sales growth of 5-8 percent this year.

PRICE-CONSCIOUS

Ford sees considerable growth prospects in central and western China, where customers tend to be more price-sensitive, favoring the older generation, or "classic", Focus car, said Marin Burela, president of Changan Ford Mazda Automobile Co.

Earlier this year, Ford launched its revamped Focus compact car in China, the first of 15 new models the company will debut by 2015. Ford will sell both the old and new models in China, Burela said.

Ford is looking to sell cars that cost less than its Fiesta subcompact, currently its cheapest model with a price tag of $12,300-$17,500. In a June investor presentation, Ford's head of Asia and Africa Joe Hinrichs said about 70 percent of Chinese buyers purchase cars that cost less than $14,500.

"We can start to begin to play in some high-volume spaces and gather more volume and gain our market share," Hinrichs said during an investor presentation. "Of course, we need the manufacturing capacity and the dealers to make that happen."

Making those vehicles in China is key to Ford's plans because Chinese import duties can increase vehicle prices considerably. Ford aims to double production capacity in China to 1.2 million vehicles by 2015, about 80 percent of which will be in Chongqing.

The Chongqing manufacturing complex currently employs 13,000 people who are, on average, 28 years old. After 2015, Ford expects to increase total staffing to 25,000, Burela said.
