In the new era, while Chongqing and other western provinces are developing cooperatively, they embrace the world with a more open and inclusive attitude. What kind of experience and inspiration will the exploration of Chongqing provide Guiyang and even Guizhou? Recently, Guiyang City “integrated into the new channel of land and sea, and built a new highland—a cross-region interview of the new channel of land and sea in the west” came to Chongqing to explore Chongqing's experience and methods to seize opportunities to promote high-quality economic development.

Opening up to attract Raffles

Three thousand years of Chongqing City, a Chaotianmen.

Chaotianmen, one of Chongqing's 17 ancient city gates, was once Chongqing's most important passenger and cargo terminal. Below the gate, the waters of the Jialing River and the Yangtze River from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau collided.

Chaotianmen is the door of Chongqing's opening and the window of opening to the outside world. It is a must-see landmark for foreign tourists to Chongqing. Today, this magnificent picture has been added with a strong impression: Singapore Raffles, the largest single investment project invested by Singapore in China, is completed and opened.

Raffles is comprised of eight tall towers, based on the Sands Hotel Singapore, one of the world's most luxurious hotels. Civil aviation passenger planes taking off from Jiangbei Airport, and the scene of "shouldering" with the buildings before flying over the Yangtze River, is a scene captured by many people.

On October 15, Raffles City, with a total investment of 24 billion yuan, officially lights up. The first three days, this commercial complex had over 900,000 passengers.

There is no doubt that in 2019, Raffles will become the most stunning new landmark in Chongqing.

Yakun Toast Restaurant from Singapore is one of the many “Internet celebrity” spots in Rafflesia. In 1944, Yakun started from a small coffee stall on the roadside in Singapore, and developed into a "national breakfast" in Singapore with unique coffee and coffee coconut bread. In the past two years, Yakun Toast has opened 5 branches in Chongqing.

Mr. Zhang, a Guizhou tourist who brought his family to Chongqing for the weekend, walked into Yakun and planned to order a cup of coffee. But he saw the barley water on the menu and immediately changed to barley water.

This drink, called Silky Barley Water, is made with barley rice, coconut milk, etc., and has the functions of cooling off heat, clearing heat and dehumidifying. It is a daily essential drink for many Singaporean families.

Mr. Zhang's hometown is in Xingren County, Qianxinan Autonomous Prefecture, Guizhou Province. This is the world's largest barley kernel processing and trading center. About 90% of barley kernel rice is from Xingren.

"Unexpectedly, Coix Rice will be blended with Singapore's coconut milk and become a drink." Mr. Zhang lamented that people from Guizhou traveled to Chongqing and drank a "Guizhou-Xinmeng fusion" beverage.

"We regularly airfreight raw materials such as coconut milk from Singapore," said a waiter. And behind Yakun's regular air coconut milk from Singapore, Chongqing and Singapore signed an air cooperation agreement to encrypt the flights between the two places to achieve the interconnection between the two places. At present, between Chongqing and Singapore, there are 14 flights a day, an increase of 12 flights compared with the previous one, no transfers are needed, and a single-line flight of more than 4 hours is forming the "Yuxin Air Corridor".

"Raffles and Chaotianmen are like a giant ship that connects Chongqing to the world. Now, by leveraging the new western land and sea corridor, Chongqing, Guiyang, Kunming, Chengdu and other western cities are more closely linked to create an important platform for group development. "" During the interview, a person from Chongqing Zhongxin Project Management Bureau said.

Interoperability adds color to Sino-Singapore cooperation

Raffles, with a total investment of 24 billion yuan, has landed in Chongqing as Singapore's largest single investment project in China.

"Fate" should start from 4 years ago. In November 2015, the third Sino-Singapore (Chongqing) strategic interoperability demonstration project between China and Singapore was officially launched. Data from the China-Singapore Interconnection Chongqing Project Department shows that up to now, China and Singapore have four national-level cooperation projects, and the other three are Suzhou Industrial Park, Tianjin Eco-City, and China-Singapore (Guangzhou) Knowledge City.

"Compared with Suzhou Industrial Park and Tianjin Eco-City, the Sino-Singapore Interconnection Project mainly has three characteristics: strategic, interoperability, and demonstration." The person in charge of the Sino-Singapore Interconnection Chongqing Project Department introduced the Sino-Singapore Interconnection Project. The basic connotation can be briefly described as "1234": 1 operation center-Chongqing, which radiates the western region and even a wider area; 2 major themes-modern interconnectedness and modern service economy; docking 3 major constructions-"Belt and Road" , The development of the western region and the development of the Yangtze River Economic Belt; around four major areas-financial services, aviation industry, transportation logistics, information and communication.

On November 12, 2018, China and Singapore formally signed the "Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation between China and Singapore (Chongqing) Strategic Interconnection Demonstration Project" New International Land and Sea Trade Channel "Construction". The geographic scope and direction of the interconnection construction are wider, and the project is more closely linked with the "Belt and Road" initiative.

"Chongqing Raffles is a highlight of Sino-Singapore cooperation and a vivid reflection of the development of Sino-Singapore cooperation projects." A person in charge of Yuzhong District, Chongqing City introduced that since the launch of the Sino-Singapore (Chongqing) Strategic Interconnection Demonstration Project In terms of cross-border RMB innovation, cross-border investment and financing, cross-border financial settlement, and the mutual establishment of Sino-Singapore financial institutions, Yuzhong District has formed a highly innovative, well-represented market player, which can be replicated and promoted to deepen the western region. Financial reform and the expansion of financial openness provide a practical path.

In August 2019, the National Development and Reform Commission issued the "Overall Planning of the New Land, Sea and Sea Western Passage". On October 13, Chongqing, Guangxi, Guizhou, Gansu, Qinghai, Xinjiang, Yunnan, Ningxia, Shaanxi, Sichuan, Inner Mongolia, Tibet and other 12 western provinces District cities and Hainan Province and Zhanjiang City of Guangdong Province signed a framework agreement in Chongqing to jointly build a new land and sea corridor in the west.

Li Muyuan, Vice President and Secretary General of China Container Industry Association, pointed out that the Plan became an important policy document to guide the open development of the western region in the future, and clarified the strategic goals and development paths of the western region to promote coordinated regional development through land-sea linkage. From the top, the overall structure, spatial layout, industrial depth, and innovation model of the new land and sea channel in the west were designed. The establishment of the new land, sea and sea corridor in the western region marked the launch of the "Belt and Road Initiative" in the western region of China.

According to the latest data, as of early October 2019, under the framework of the China-Singapore Interconnection Project, 199 projects have been signed with a total value of 26.98 billion US dollars. Among them, 156 projects have been implemented with a value of USD 20.543 billion; 43 projects are underway with a value of USD 6.44 billion.

Guizhou-Chongqing cooperation from pepper industry to multi-industry

On November 7, at the 2nd China International Import Expo, a "super hot pot" from Chongqing in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River set off a "hot" in Shanghai where this river entered the sea.

Chongqing has about 30,000 hot pot restaurants, and within the inner ring of the main urban area, there are 21.7 hot pot restaurants per square kilometer. The huge market demand has made Chongqing hotpot, which had only regional influence, gradually become a super industry chain with more than 100,000 stores across the country and an operating income of more than 400 billion yuan.

At the upstream of this industry chain, peppers from Guizhou occupy "half the wall".

"In the hot pot in Chongqing, most of the hot peppers in the fragrant soup base come from our Guizhou." Wang Yan, a Guiyang man who has been in the catering business for many years in Chongqing, has been in Chongqing for more than 10 years.

Guizhou is one of the earliest regions in China to grow and eat peppers. In 2019, Guizhou is expected to have an annual output of 6 million tons of peppers, an output value of 20 billion yuan, a processing output value of 12 billion yuan, and a pepper turnover of 70 billion yuan. The production and sales scale of Guizhou pepper is the largest in the country, with a planting area of 5 million mu, accounting for about one-sixth of the country and one-tenth of the world.

"Guizhou peppers are irreplaceable in terms of spicy, fragrant and color. They occupy the 'half wall' in the Chongqing market." Cao Hongliang, chairman of the Chongqing Dry Pepper Association, said that at present, Guizhou peppers in the Chongqing market are mainly filled with stars. Every year, about 15,000 tons of Guizhou peppers are sold to Chongqing and surrounding markets.

"For example, the branches of Qinma Hot Pot in the United States and Canada use Guizhou peppers from Chongqing to overseas." Cao Hongliang said that the pepper industries in Guizhou and Chongqing complement each other. 120, with a general annual output value of about 20 million to 50 million yuan. These secondary processed Guizhou peppers are not only sold to 28 provinces, municipalities, and autonomous regions of the country, but also across the sea, and are sold to countries with a large Chinese population such as the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia.

In Chongqing hot pot, there are pepper, vegetables, mushrooms, bamboo shoots, chicken, beef and so on.

There is a "Liziba Liangshan Chicken" restaurant near the "red rail crossing" net red spot, which is also a "net red".

The catering company whose name has nothing to do with Guizhou, the most important ingredient-each nearly three kilograms of chicken, comes from Liupanshui City, Guizhou Province. And this "chicken" has an annual output value of more than 30 million yuan.

"Li Ziba Liangshan Chicken" CEO Ai Xiang said that one of the important secrets of success is to control the selection of ingredients. "Guizhou provides us with the conditions for success," he said.

Guizhou-Chongqing cooperation is not just about "hot pot raw materials" supply and demand. In April 2018, Chongqing and Guizhou signed the Cooperation Framework Agreement between the People's Government of Chongqing and the People's Government of Guizhou Province. In March 2019, the Development and Reform Commissions of the two places took the lead in jointly compiling the "Implementation Plan for the Construction of the Pilot Area of Chongqing-Guizhou Cooperation Pioneer", which was formally announced. This is an inevitable result of the coordinated development of the western provinces.
