CHENGDU, China, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Is western China only capable of undertaking labor-intensive manufacturing from southern and eastern Chinese cities? With China's growth slowing, will the global investment to the inland west shrink? During the upcoming CPC and CPPCC sessions, Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province in southwestern China answers these questions.
On Feb. 27, Chengdu Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone (Chengdu Hi-tech Zone) and Singapore-Sichuan Hi-tech Innovation Park (SSCIP) held a signing ceremony for official cooperation agreements with five partners -- Tencent Holdings Limited, Shenzhen Power Leader Group, Guangdong OPPO Mobile Telecommunications Corporation, Guangxi Conha Group, Shenzhen Chipscreen Biosciences Limited -- and a total investment of $6.7 billion yuan.
As the most influential cyber giant in China, Tencent announced a $1 billion yuan investment to establish a southwest headquarter for running its whole business chain. China's first A-grade public listed Internet gaming company, ZQ Games, owned by Shenzhen Power Leader Group is one of the companies investing into SSCIP. One of China's leading mobile device manufacturers, Guangdong OPPO Telecommunications Group is investing approximately $1.2 billion yuan into the Park. A market leader in the steel manufacturing and export business since 1992, Guangxi Conha Group is investing $2 billion yuan to develop a steel and electronics-trading hub. A leading integrated biotech company, Chipscreen Biosciences is investing $2 billion yuan to establish a drug R&D base and headquarters. Those projects will accelerate Chengdu's IT, biopharmaceutical and logistics industries into the global market.
"China's westward movement in industries is ongoing," said a Chengdu Hi-tech Zone official at the ceremony. While remaining a magnet for domestic and foreign investment, western China demonstrates growing importance as China's economic hinterland. Chengdu, as an example, not only plays a significant role in manufacturing, but also proves itself in developing high-end industries of advanced technology. The wealth of talent and human resources, reasonable labor and living cost, and profound culture and hi-tech foundation make the city surprisingly inviting for global investors -- not to mention the driving force of the "Go West" Policy. With a very central geographical location, the city possesses well-developed logistics for unlocking the greater western China market.
Investing in China today is less a matter of deciding whether to do it than figuring out how and where to begin. Within the country's determination of economic reform, tremendous opportunities are approaching for both Chengdu and western China.

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...
