of Xinhua news agency, China’s “Auto City”, Chongqing and Chengdu can be called “twin stars” in Southwest China. Chongqing, known as “China’s Detroit”, has formed an industrial system supported by the automobile industry since the 1990s, and has been running out of the glory of Chang’an and Lifan. Although it started late, Chengdu has a strong future. It has taken more than ten years to attract FAW Volkswagen, Volvo, Bosch and other brands to settle in Chengdu, basically forming an automobile industrial cluster, aiming at high-end.

are less than 300 kilometers apart. How can Chengdu Chongqing automobile industry “accommodate two tigers in one mountain”? This topic is not only hotly debated in the market, but also often a bargaining chip for attracting investment between the two places. In January this year, the sixth meeting of the central financial and Economic Commission proposed to promote the construction of double city economic circle in Chengdu Chongqing region and form an important growth pole of high-quality development in the western region. The original pattern is quietly changing. The automobile production accounts for 18% of the whole country. By changing the regional market positioning, looking at the big market, strengthening the cooperation of industrial circle and industrial chain, we can jointly shape the comparative advantage and lead to the new future of automobile industry.

According to the agreement, Geely Holding Group will build high-end new energy vehicle production base in Liangjiang New Area, and build Geely industrial Internet headquarters and digital chemical plant project. This is regarded as an important step for Geely to “March” into Chongqing. Before

All the private universities with more than 20 years of history will move from the capital to Chengdu, becoming the first undergraduate college to recruit students in the eastern new area.

, as the main leaders of Chengdu automobile industry, started construction of Geely’s Chengdu factory in 2009, and was completed and put into operation in less than a year. In 2019, Geely will cross the Longquan Mountain and “pioneer” again in the second battlefield in the East. In Jianzhou new city, Geely invested 15 billion yuan to build Geely Chengdu Mingtai equation space-time port, which is also the first project signed and started construction in the eastern new area. Is there any new strategic consideration behind Geely’s move from Chengdu to Chongqing? Geely Holding Group related responsible person disclosed more details of Chengdu Chongqing layout. “We have made it clear that Chengdu and Chongqing should have a differentiated layout, which is reflected in the common development of projects and the combination of strong and strong.” The person in charge stressed that Geely in Chengdu and Chongqing “does not engage in duplicate construction, to consider the local characteristics and possibilities.”

and

are clearly reflected in Geely’s latest layout in the two places. For example, Chengdu is still a key city for vehicle manufacturing. At present, the automobile production capacity of Geely’s brands is more than 500000, and the paoshida high performance electric vehicle manufacturing center is also located in Chengdu Tianfu new area. The person in charge revealed that Geely also intends to build an industrial tourism spot in Chengdu in the future.

and

are located in Chongqing’s high-end new energy vehicle production base with a production capacity of 20000 vehicles, which is a small personalized factory. Geely’s “big move” in Chongqing is the industrial Internet. According to the person in charge, “Geely places high hopes on the industrial Internet, and its investment is no less than a vehicle factory.” The industrial Internet platform extends from manufacturing to logistics and information transformation. In the future, it will be connected to the automobile industry chain in the region and promote the industry to move forward to the middle and high end. Since the beginning of this year, Geely’s action radius in Chengdu Chongqing area has expanded significantly. In addition to frequent actions in Chengdu and Chongqing, the new energy commercial vehicle phase II project in Nanchong has also been promoted. The latest news is that the power battery joint venture between Ningde times and Geely Automobile has settled down in Yibin, which also means that Geely’s battery business has landed in the Shuangcheng economic circle of Chengdu Chongqing region.

of Geely is an epitome of “hand in hand” of Chengdu Chongqing automobile industry. The epidemic situation of

has just eased down on March 25 this year. Chengdu green intelligent automobile industry ecosphere network promotion meeting, auto parts supplier investment and industry promotion and Chengdu Economic Development Zone investment environment network promotion meeting were held. FAW Volkswagen Chengdu Branch, Sichuan FAW Toyota, Chengdu plateau automobile, Volvo car and other Chengdu Economic Development Zone Longtou vehicle enterprises made on-site capacity planning and supporting demand promotion, and offered cooperation to global parts enterprises As a win-win “olive branch”, online attracted more than 1000 well-known parts enterprises such as Changchun Jieyi and Jiangsu Xinquan.

and

are the “first moves” of Chengdu automobile industry after experiencing the epidemic. Wu Ping, manager of Public Relations Department of FAW Volkswagen Chengdu Branch, remembers that it was difficult to resume work and production after the epidemic. Because the supply chain was blocked, the economic and information department once had to send a letter to the provincial economic and information department, imploring support for the local parts manufacturing enterprises to resume production. Thanks to the local parts suppliers of Longquanyi, the production capacity was rapidly restored. The

and

local supporting facilities play a role in the critical moment, which can be seen from the “planning” three years ago. In July 2017, Chengdu proposed at the industrial development conference that 66 industrial functional areas should be constructed as a whole, and then optimized and adjusted to 14 industrial ecosystems. The green intelligent Internet connected automobile industry ecosystem is the key to promote the efficient allocation of automobile industry elements and the chain formation of industrial clusters. In three years, Chengdu’s automobile production capacity has reached 2 million vehicles, and the supporting system has been continuously improved. It has gathered 28 vehicle enterprises and 218 parts and components enterprises above the scale. In the post epidemic era of

and

, Chengdu’s industrial ecosystem needs to be expanded. “The epidemic situation will force vehicle enterprises to improve supporting systems nearby, adjust production capacity layout, and bring window opportunities for investment promotion of automobile industry chain and supply chain.” Chengdu should make full use of Chengdu and ChongqingWith the natural advantages of 300 km cooperation and supporting radius of automobile industry, Chengde Meizi has jointly launched and planned a number of major projects to promote collaborative and linkage development. The judgment of

and

is in line with the spirit of the seventh plenary session of the 13th Chengdu municipal Party committee. The plenary session pointed out that facing the future, Chengdu Chongqing cooperation should change its regional market positioning, look at the Asian and European markets, strengthen industrial circle cooperation and industrial chain cooperation, form a comparative competitive advantage with the support of capacity scale, huge market and innovation ability, and comprehensively enhance the core function support of important economic centers. In the past, Longquanyi District of

,

and “Auto City” was thought to be faced with the homogenization competition of Chongqing. Chengdu Economic Development Zone (Longquanyi District), as a national demonstration base of new-type industrialized automobile industry, has gathered 11 automobile enterprises including FAW Volkswagen, FAW Toyota and Volvo. In 2019, the vehicle output exceeded 1 million vehicles and the output value exceeded 200 billion yuan. The automobile output accounted for 90% of the whole province and 98% of the city. There are four industrial functional areas in the green intelligent Internet connected automobile industry ecosystem, three of which are located in Longquanyi District.

“Chengdu and Chongqing have accounted for 18% of the country’s automobile production, and have the strength to participate in global competition and drive regional development.” He Xun, Secretary of Longquanyi District Party committee, knows Chongqing’s automobile industry clearly. Chongqing has gathered a number of well-known enterprises at home and abroad. As a traditional automobile manufacturing base, Chongqing has mastered the key links of automobile production, parts and components production. After years of industrial layout and investment promotion, Chengdu has built a complete set of steel and metallurgy covering automobile manufacturing and parts manufacturing Gold, glass, plastic, logistics, transportation, maintenance, insurance and other industrial clusters. “We have a competitive relationship with Chongqing, there is indeed competition in sales, and cooperation is to build an ecosystem in a wider range.”

a new pattern,

expand the adaptability of domestic demand.

industry generally believes that the automobile industry is going through a difficult period of labor. According to the public data of China Automobile Industry Association, China’s automobile sales volume experienced negative growth for the first time in 2018; the automobile sales volume in 2019 decreased by 2.312 million vehicles compared with that in 2018, a year-on-year decrease of 8.2%; affected by the epidemic situation, the macroeconomic slowdown, industry de capacity, de inventory factors, it is expected that China’s auto market will still bottom out in 2020.

and

the establishment of “competition and cooperation mode” in Chengdu Chongqing automobile industry also means that the two places need to join hands to enter a critical period of transformation and upgrading. Where is the road of

and

? In recent years, with the changes of the external environment and the factor endowment of China’s development, the kinetic energy of the international large cycle of market and resources has obviously weakened, while the domestic demand potential has been continuously released, and the vitality of the domestic large cycle has become increasingly strong. The central government proposed to “speed up the construction of a domestic large cycle based, international and domestic dual cycle pattern”, and firmly grasp the strategic basis point of expanding domestic demand. Wu Lin, director of West China Industrial Service Department of

and

, believes that the domestic market capacity can support the development of automobile industry in Chengdu and Chongqing. According to the data of the world bank, there are about 173 cars per thousand people in China and 837 vehicles per thousand people in the United States. Therefore, there is still a lot of room for growth in China’s automobile sales, and there is still room for increase in the sales of cars in Chengdu and Chongqing. Further analysis of

and

indicates that the construction of double city economic circle in Chengdu Chongqing region provides a direction for solving the homogenization of Chengdu Chongqing automobile industry. Chongqing automobile brands include Lifan, Chang’an and other local enterprises, while Chengdu has attracted foreign enterprises such as FAW Volkswagen, Volvo and Bosch through a good business environment. “From this point of view, because Chongqing has a strong ability to cultivate automobile brands with good industrial genes, Chengdu is more attractive to foreign automobile enterprises,” Wu Lin suggested. Chengdu Chongqing automobile industry should promote integrated development, ensure free circulation of capital, labor, policies and other production factors between the two places, accelerate the process of urbanization, and change the “separation” of industrial development between the two cities present situation. Secondly, we should give full play to their advantages. Chengdu Economic and Technological Development Zone and Chongqing Liangjiang New Area should join hands to attract investment, build an industrial platform, and form technical, market and resource forces to jointly build a pillar industry and jointly promote the high-end development of automobile industry in Chengdu and Chongqing.

and

undoubtedly, at the critical moment of “integrating into the double cycle and singing a good tale of two cities”, who can expand the adaptability of the supply system to domestic demand will be able to occupy more domestic market. Chengdu and Chongqing tacitly regard new energy vehicles and intelligent connected vehicles as “explosive points” to trigger the next round of automobile enterprise reform. In 2018, Chongqing issued the guiding opinions on accelerating the transformation and upgrading of the automobile industry, taking new energy vehicles and intelligent connected vehicles as the two key points of Chongqing’s automobile transformation and upgrading; in 2019, Chengdu released the Chengdu green intelligent automobile industry development plan, which will also promote the development of green intelligent automobile industry cluster.

and

Wu Lin believes that with the maturity and application of technologies, such as 5g, AI, Internet of things and other technologies, automatic driving, intelligent interaction, new energy and other product functions are constantly emerging and widely used. In the long run, the development trend of the automobile industry will remain unchanged for a long time.

and “Gemini” will continue to shine, and the future is expected.
