China issued a master plan for the construction of the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle as part of efforts to form a new super-region in the country’s southwest.

The plan, made public on October 20 by the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council, laid out a series of measures, ranging from scientific and technological innovation to urbanization and from 5G network to pilot free trade zones.

It aims to turn the Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle to a new driver and an important growth engine of the country’s high-quality development.

CMG takes a closer look at the development of the dual-city’s economic circle with the series Periscope, looking at stories of six foreigners who have been living there for years.

Gianluca Luisi from Italy is the CEO of Chongqing Dezhuang International Trading Co., Ltd. Living in Chongqing for 10 years, he has turned into a Sichuan-Chongqing food promoter from a diplomat, believing that food is the best ambassador and hoping to promote Sichuan-Chongqing culture through food. Over the last few years, he has introduced hundreds of Sichuan-Chongqing cuisines to more than 30 countries and regions. He is full of expectations for the construction of the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle and believes that he can also make a contribution to this strategy. He predicts that soon when people talk about China, they will not only think of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou but also Sichuan and Chongqing.
