During my visit to Chongqing to attend Chongqing International Mobile Phone Expo, the organisers, shoujibao.cn had taken around 200 international visitors to few factories which are situated in Chongqing Xipeng Industrial Park. As mentioned in my earlier post, Chongqing is being developed at rapid speed so that it could be another industrial hub of China. Already many established brands have set up their factories here including global top 500 companies such as Asus, ABB, Yamaha etc with diversified range of products including wearable devices, mobile phones, displays etc.

Some of the world class enterprises located here are Southwest Aluminium, Qingling Motors, Gree Electric Appliances, Loncin Holdings and so on. Chongqing Hi-Tech Industrail Development zone is spread over 72km2.
