Wenjiang: True model of ‘Better City, Better Life’

Service industries set to shine

The message the local government is conveying to investors is that the service industry, not manufacturing, is the key.

Wenjiang: True model of ‘Better City, Better Life’

Wenjiang district, a newly urbanized area west of downtown Chengdu, is now seen by locals as a model of how to create a better life for residents.

With an area of only 277 sq km, a population of 338,400 and a gross domestic product of 17.1 billion yuan in 2009, Wenjiang’s administrators are not keen to promote themselves with just surging statistical figures.

Authorities and residents want the district to be a harmonious combination of prosperity and serenity, modernity and ancient heritage.
