    By Xu Dingmu (China Daily)

    In the new round of China’s strategy to develop its western regions, the Tianfu New Area, which is located in Chengdu, Southwest China's Sichuan province and aimed to build a "new Chengdu", began construction on December 25, 2011.

    In effect an all-new city, Tianfu's GDP is projected to hit 650 billion yuan ($103 billion) by the end of 2020, according to plans from the local government.

    China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) — the nation’s top economic planner — said the country has started 23 key western projects at a total investment of 682.2 billion yuan since the end of 2010, about one-third of the total investment made in its "Go-west" Campaign over the previous nine years.

    But Yuan Gangming, a researcher with the Center for China in the World Economy at Tsinghua University, said the lack of preferential tax policies over past decade meant a shortage of foreign and private investment in the region.

    The shortfall hindered the area from turning its resource advantages into economic benefits.

    The latest move proves that the central government's policy is changing during the latest round of western development, Yuan said.

    As a large city in the center of the region, Chengdu has developed faster than other cities in Sichuan. In recent years it has become home to regional headquarters of international high-tech companies including Dell, Lenovo, Foxconn and TCL.

    Some 50 percent of all laptop computer chips are tested in Chengdu and 20 percent of all computers worldwide — including 70 percent of Apple’s iPads — will soon be made in the city.

    With its sound infrastructure, preferential policies, low operating costs, plentiful human resources and quality services, the city has become a focus for global giants as they move further inland in China.

    By last November, Chengdu has become home to 207 Fortune 500 companies including IBM, Alcatel, Siemens, GE, Cisco, Ericsson, SAP and Accenture. Of the world’s top 20 software firms, 11 have launched operations in the city.

    The State Council approved plans for the Chengdu-Chongqing Regional Economic Zone last April, setting a goal for it to become the most important economic area and modern industrial production center for western China by 2015, the last year of the country’s 12th Five-Year Plan period (2011-2015).

    The economic zone blueprint calls increased production of large equipment, aviation, R&D, petrochemicals and natural gas, metallurgy, biopharmaceuticals, textiles and foodstuffs.

    Plans for the Chengdu Tianfu New Area were officially published in last October. They envision a livable new city fueled by modern manufacturing, high-end services and a quality lifestyle.

    The plans call for five economic zones as well as two lakes and a mountain encompassed within the 1,578-square-kilometer area.

    Construction on 150 new projects in manufacturing, infrastructure and ecology has already begun in the Tianfu New Area. Among them, 84 in urban Chengdu have a combined investment of 214.4 billion yuan.

    According to the plan, 35 communities with work places and residential buildings will be built in the new area, each covering 20 to 30 square kilometers.

    To reduce traffic congestion and pollution, transport to and from work for residents will mostly be by bus and bicycle.

    Singapore-Sichuan Innovation Technology Park — a joint project by a Singaporean consortium headed by Temasek Holdings and the Chengdu High-tech Industrial Development Zone — is at the core of the Tianfu New Area.

    The park will focus on innovative industries such as energy conservation technology, biomedicines and high-end services.

    Lim Swee Say, a cabinet minister at the Prime Minister’s Office in Singapore, said the affluent island nation is “very interested” in China’s western development strategy.

    By 1996, the country has already been the third-biggest foreign investor in Sichuan, but Lim noted the Singapore-Sichuan Innovation Technology Park is the first large comprehensive development by Singaporean companies in the province.

    The Chengdu Military Region (simplified Chinese: 成都军区; traditional Chinese: 成都軍區; pinyin: chéngdū jūnqū is a military administrative command located in the southwest of the People's Republic of China, covering Chongqing, Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou, and the Xizang/Tibet Autonomous Region. It includes some of the area previously within the Kunming Military Region and has its headquarters in Chengdu.

    The Military Region includes two Group Armies (the 13th and 14th), the Tibetan 52nd and 53d Mountain Brigades, the 149th Motorised Infantry Division at Emei, Sichuan (near Mount Emei), 2 Mobile Armed Police Divisions (38th and 41st), and the 2nd Army Aviation Regiment at Chengdu.

    The International Institute for Strategic Studies attributes the region with some 180,000 personnel, with four motorised infantry divisions, one artillery division, two armoured brigades, one artillery brigade, and two anti-aircraft brigades.

    The military districts that fall within the Chengdu Military Region are:

    Sichuan Provincial Military District
    Tibet Military District
    Guizhou Provincial Military District

    Chengdu Military Region(MR), though responsible for a wide area including Tibet and facing India, is the smallest MR among China's 7 MRs with only 2 group armies (Units 77100 and 77200).

    Ich hab mein Herz in Chengdu verloren! But not due to those fabulous buildings at all, there're many in China better than this. Instead impressed by local people's life philosophy.

    Yes Chengdu is VERY important for China's defence industry. My friend it's not to be measured by the size of "Chengdu Command".:shocked:

    Located nearby are well-known research institutions, such as the China Academy of Engineering Physics and China Aerodynamics Research and Development Center.

    I don't think I have to be told that size of a Command is not the criterion for efficiency or military preparedness.

    What matter is what it contains!

    Chengdu has been loved with the Chongqing competition, because Chongqing has approved the national level " new Liangjiang", Chengdu unwilling, it makes this new area is to own their own approval, not how much weight. Chongqing is now greatly exceed Chengdu, the heart is not balanced.

    How many locals will find employment in this new Chengdu?

    Or is it a subtle plan to change the demography?

    Though the Qin Dynasty destroyed the Shu and Ba Kingdoms, do any people claim to be Ba or Shu?

    Chengdu impressed me with its entertainment industry. Those pubs and hot singers.

    After all it's done quite a good job by attracting Intel, Motorola, GE, Toyota... and becoming a back-office service centre for multinationals.

    Hi Dear, you are too radical and extreme. Hope you are not the main stream of Indian. A lot of my Indian friends are very kind and nice.
