Chengdu is currently the Midwest region with the highest concentration of Hong Kong capital.”

Chengdu and Hong Kong strengthen their cooperation, and Chengdu and Hong Kong science and technology innovation will bolster the park citys industrial base.

Chengdu, as the “Land of Heaven,” has a rich history, culture, and natural resources, as well as an ancient Shu civilization. The fourteenth five-year plan has repositioned Hong Kong as a hub for cultural and aesthetic exchanges between China and other nations. As Hong Kong absorbs the diverse cultures of the East and West, Chengdu and Hong Kong can collaborate to convey Chengdus story and enhance the citys communication capabilities.
