Chongqing will speed up building a cross-border land-sea trade corridor so it can play a leading role in the Belt and Road Initiative, local authorities said on Wednesday in Beijing.

Located on the upper reaches of the Yangtze River, the municipality in Southwest China boasts key geographic advantages as a strategic pivot of the country's development program for its western regions along with being a connecting point for the BRI and the Yangtze Economic Belt.

"We should make good use of this advantage and build Chongqing into an international logistics hub to drive regional development," Chongqing Mayor Tang Liangzhi said at a news conference on the municipality's economic and social development since the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949.
