The 10 areas include the next generation of information technology, new infrastructure construction, high-end equipment manufacturing, new materials, the biological industry, new energy vehicles, environmental protection, digital creativity, new consumption, and science equipment.

Chongqing plans to implement at least 40 projects from State-owned companies, 500 projects from private companies and 50 from foreign companies, as well as sign 1 trillion yuan of formal project contacts, 45 percent of which should be industrial projects.
