Chongqing Xiyong Micro-Electronics Industrial Park.
Chongqing Xiyong Micro-Electronics Industrial Park.

In recent years, China has been implementing the strategy of open economy and regional developments, and therefore the infrastructure and investment environment of the central and western regions were significantly improved. The industrial developments in the cities of these regions are picking up momentum very quickly.

According to the statistics of the National Bureau of Statistics of China, the growth of industrial values for enterprises above designated level in central and western China were 1.2% and 0.2% higher than the country average level in the first three quarters of 2017.

In the wake of the rising electricity and labor cost as well as the shortage of land resources in eastern China, more enterprises in the automotive, E&E, printing and packaging industries are shifting their production to central and western China. This production shift is reinforcing the development of the plastic industry in these regions.

The city is also the starting point of the Chongqing-Xinjiang-Europe Railway, also known as Yu’Xin’Ou Railway, and a key import and export city in western China.

Huge quantity of plastics machinery and plastic materials are imported into China through Chongqing every year. The city is now an important trading and service centre for materials procurement. It is also a city of choice for investors targeting to unlock the market potential of the central and western China.

Chongqing is one of the biggest production bases of notebook computers in the world, and the second largest production base of automobiles in China, representing loads of opportunities to the plastics industry. The market demand for plastics is expected to reach 7 million tons at RMB 200 billion by 2025.

The Chongqing local government is focusing on the establishment of a giant plastics industry park, so as to facilitate the forming of a plastics industry cluster in the city.

According to the planning, the production value of the plastics industry park will reach hundreds of billions of RMB, and house the production of plastic products, molds, modified plastics, research & development, testing and trading.
