Living in Chongqing
Chongqing is located at the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers in southwest China. It is surrounded by Hubei and Hunan to the east, Guizhou to the south, Sichuan to the west and north, and Shaanxi at its northeast corner. It was established as one of the four direct-controlled municipalities in 1997 and the only one in west China. Chongqing reports directly to the central government. Comprising 21 districts and 17 counties, it has become the largest economic centre in west China as well as an important transportation hub and an inland port.
Chongqing is one of the fastest growing cities in China. Besides the construction of the Three Gorges Dam Project, its rapid economic growth could also be attributed to China’s “favourable policies”, particularly the “Go West” strategy launched in 2000, which aims to generate investment in western China. Chongqing has largely benefitted from the policy and became a significant trading and manufacturing hub as well as a major gateway to west China. With its strategic location, Chongqing is also “a key strategic node” of the Belt and Road Initiative, which was unveiled in 2013 and aims to connect 65 countries across three continents through China.
Chongqing is an important consumer market in southwest China due to its large population. Some of the major local and overseas retailers that have established their presence in Chongqing include Carrefour from France, Walmart from the United States, Metro from Germany and IKEA from Sweden.

Besides its breathtaking landscapes of mountains, rivers, forests, springs, waterfall gorges and caves, Chongqing also has the Dazu Rock Carvings, the Three Gorges, Small Little Gorges and the Natural Pit and Land Crack in Fengjie.
