Aug. 20 (NBD) -- Southwest China's Chengdu is vigorously boosting the new economy industry by launching another round of new economy scenes and products.

"Convergence of Scenes – Chengdu Eastern New Area Meets the Future", one of the events affiliated to 2020 Chengdu New Economy Double Thousand Project, is held on August 20 at the Chengdu Tianfu International Airport. The event introduces 100 new scenes and 100 new products of the new economy sector.

Chengdu Eastern New Area, officially licensed this May, is a significant part of Chengdu's development blueprint, and new economy constitutes one of the new area's focuses. 

Expected to be put into use in 2021, the Chengdu Tianfu International Airport will make Chengdu the third boasting two international airports in China, after Beijing and Shanghai. The airport will not only serve as an international aviation hub but also take the role of creating an aviation economic zone in newly launched Chengdu Eastern New Area.

It's noticed that Chengdu Eastern New Area is located on the main axis from Chengdu to Chongqing. It is expected to accelerate the development of the Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle, an initiative proposed by the Chinese authorities earlier this year, in an attempt to foster a growth pole for high-quality development in western China. The airport will be a major transportation hub of the Chengdu-Chongqing economic rim and open a gateway for further opening-up.

According to the development plan, by 2025, Chengdu Eastern New Area will take an initial shape and the Chengdu Tianfu International Airport's function as an international aviation hub will gradually stand out. And by 2035, the new area will be a modern one and become a core fulcrum of the international aviation hubs. At the time, the new economy sector is expected to take a lead in driving the development of Chengdu Eastern New Area.
