A west-China province undergoing rapid development and change
This chapter highlights four aspects of social and economic development over the past decade in Sichuan province, which is located in southwest China, by the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. These include the improvement of social and economic development under the ‘Grand Strategy of West China Development’; adjustment of industrial structures and the public service system following the 2008 earthquake; the balancing of interaction between the city and the country; and Sichuan’s opening up to industry. Sichuan’s industrial products have seen recent rises in international trade, accounting for more than 90 per cent of both exports and imports.
