Changshou District stands out as the sole city in China that bears the name "longevity". Situated to the east of Chongqing's central urban area, it stretches across both banks of the majestic Yangtze River. Renowned as a crucial hub for steel and chemical industries in the western region, it serves as the primary urban center and pilot area in the urban integration development of Chongqing. It has the regional advantages of encompassing the main urban area and connecting the two wings, as well as the developmental advantages of high degree of industrial agglomeration and strong carrying capacity for industrial parks. The district also enjoys an advantageous logistics network, with multiple transportation options including railways, highways, waterways and pipelines. Adding to its allure, Changshou District is blessed with a picturesque environment, surrounded by mountains and waters, demonstrating a distinctive ecological advantage. Stepping into a new journey towards the comprehensive development of a socialist modernized country, the Changshou District Committee and Government are wholeheartedly dedicated to creating a veritably 'long-life' city in China that is internationally recognized, environmentally friendly, intelligent, and culturally rich. Guided by this development vision, they have identified several key objectives, including establishing a globally influential highland for new materials, a world-class destination for sports and wellness tourism, and a thriving center for life sciences in Changshou, China. Through these concerted efforts, their ultimate goal is to promote high-quality development.
We position ourselves at implementing the "3113" project and generating new momentum and advantages for development, by concentrating our efforts on the action plan and effectively overcoming any obstacles that may arise. To facilitate the development of the Chengdu-Chongqing dual-city economic circle in Chongqing, we are committed to implementing ten strategic actions and establishing "four lists" as part of the three special projects for "two cities and one city" development. Over the upcoming five years, we will be driving forward over 10 particularly significant projects and over 100 major projects per special project, with a total investment exceeding 300 billion CNY. Our aim is to create remarkable and pioneering accomplishments that will leave a lasting impact and garner widespread recognition. We will establish a general headquarter for overall coordination and three specialized command headquarters for deployment, appoint 30 district leaders as project team leaders, and create a "one-on-one" work pattern with 66 service specialists. Additionally, we will plan and reserve resources for 66 particularly significant projects and 317 major projects. In 2022, the district achieved a regional gross domestic product (GDP) of 91.86 billion CNY (growth rate 2.6%), a total output value of 147.15 billion CNY (growth rate 3.7%) for above-scale industries, and a fixed asset investment of 31.02 billion CNY (growth rate 5.2%). In the first quarter of 2023, the regional GDP experienced a remarkable growth of 7%, ranking the citywide top. Furthermore, the added value of above-scale industries increased by 10.2%, ranking the citywide sixth place.
