CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- To create a trillion-dollar industrial cluster of intelligent connected new-energy vehicles, Chongqing has to concentrate its efforts on growth rate, quality improvement, and ecological protection. The Chongqing investment promotion delegation, composed of the head of Chongqing Investment Promotion Bureau and other authorities from Yuzhong District, Yubei District, Liangjiang New Area, and Western (Chongqing) Science City, visited Italy and Germany to seek partnerships between June 29 and July 5.
The investment promotion delegation arrived at their first stop, Italy, between June 29 and July 2. The delegation learned about the production technology and product features of the company in SWM Motorcycles. “The motorcycle market in Chongqing has great potential.” Yang Zixuan, a member of the Party group and deputy director of Chongqing Investment Promotion Bureau, hopes that with the support of SHINERAY headquarters in Chongqing, SWM Motorcycles will increase its market share in Europe and introduce the high-end technology and motorcycle models of SWM Motorcycles to Chongqing.
Subsequently, the investment promotion delegation visited COMAU for an in-depth discussion on its investment in building a robot manufacturing base in Chongqing.
Zhao Bing, a member of the Party group and deputy mayor of Yubei People’s Government, said that Chongqing has gathered more than 300 upstream and downstream enterprises of the key robot industry chain, such as GSK, Wasu, Kawasaki, and Fanuc. By the end of last year, Chongqing has produced over 60,000 sets of robots, achieving an output value of more than 30 billion yuan. Chongqing is dedicated to developing a first-class robot application demonstration base and an industrial innovation and development demonstration zone in China. Chongqing looked forward to strengthening cooperation with COMAU and starting new projects in Chongqing.
During the journey in Italy, the investment promotion delegation visited several local enterprises like INTESA SANPAOLO and the European Design Center of Changan Auto.
INTESA SANPAOLO will, based on the established "Italy-China Fund", strengthen cooperation with Chongqing Industry, Science, and Finance Service Platform and other platforms and arrange for visits to Chongqing, said Mr. Rosario Strano, head of the Chinese projects at INTESA SANPAOLO.
At the European Design Center of Changan Auto, Fan Yu, Party secretary and director of the Industry Bureau of Liangjiang New Area Administrative Committee, said that Liangjiang New Area is accelerating the construction of an important intelligent connected new-energy vehicle manufacturing base in China.
