- Cities can increase economic growth and participate in global economic flows by acting as hubs or gateways to regional corridors, that are supported by three dimensions of connectivity: physical (infrastructure) connectivity, digital connectivity, and economic integration. Integrating these dimensions increases economic output and generates more high-quality jobs. Connectivity integration also helps a city accumulate knowledge and has positive spillover effects for the broader economy. Chongqing stands out for its well-developed infrastructure and digital connectivity, but it has yet to leverage these assets to promote regional economic integration. This report recommends: leverage existing transport infrastructure and supplement it with better integration between land, air, and water transport to build a major logistics hub; strengthen cooperation with Chengdu, Sichuan, and other regional partners to promote regional economic integration; and improve digital infrastructure with faster internet connection speeds and promote the wider adoption of digitization of services.
