Chengdu bucks falling foreign trade trend

25 June 2014
Foreign trade in Chengdu grew 6.3 per cent year-on-year in the first five months of 2014 to US$22.4bn, according to local customs data. This was achieved against a backdrop of declining foreign trade at a national level, with exports down 2.7 per cent and imports falling 1.6 per cent.

The Sichuan capital is China’s fourth largest air hub, with 73 international routes. It is also increasingly benefiting from railway services to Lodz in Poland. A return route service may begin later this year, according to local officials.

In a separate study by the Asian Development Bank, Chengdu has emerged as the most liveable city on the Chinese mainland. The research is based on a variety of environmental sustainability factors including the quality of water resources, air and the management of solid waste.

Most of the data used in the evaluation of the 33 cities were from published sources, with the latest data from 2011.

Guangzhou and Ningbo ranked second and third, respectively, while Beijing came in 18th place and Shanghai 22nd.

The ranking suggests that the liveability index is lowest in north China, the northwest and in less-developed regions.
