This report provides a view on the Chongqing area and argues three dimensions of connectivity can be improved: physical (infrastructure) connectivity, digital connectivity, and economic integration with nearby areas. To carry this out the 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.
