The construction of the Chengdu-Chongqing dual-city economic circle has become a national plan and the Tianfu New Area in Sichuan province is an important development engine for the circle, local officials said.

The Tianfu New Area is accelerating the creation of a park city in the new era and becoming a model for high-quality development with a better business environment.

The Plan for the Construction of a Stable, Fair and Accessible Business Environment in the Tianfu New Area was released to create a high-level international business environment benchmark and optimize regulations on market, supervision, legal protection and business. It focuses on the full lifecycle of enterprise services, with 148 reform measures.

On the evening of July 23, a stunning neon mirroring party was presented in the Sino-Italian Cultural Exchange City Reception Center in the Tianfu New Area.

Fendi, a luxury brand from Italy, brought a number of showbiz stars, artists and fashion bloggers to its debut to celebrate the launch of the men's 2021-22 autumn and winter series, demonstrating a different Italian style.

The Sino-Italian Cultural Exchange City Reception Center, which opened in April, is a brand-new cultural and creative landmark in the area that aims to build an international cooperation platform for cultural exchanges and mutual learning.

The Sino-Italian Cultural Exchange City Reception Center has hosted cultural exchanges, economic and trade activities such as the celebration of the National Day of Italy in 2021, and the themed photography exhibition titled China and Italy-Lights and Shadows on the Silk Road.

The Sino-Italian Cultural Innovation Industrial Park, where the Sino-Italian Cultural Exchange City Reception Center is located, will be built into a landmark of Sino-Italian cultural innovation under the Belt and Road Initiative, an international cultural tourism destination and a world-class cultural and creative intellectual property incubator.

At present, the Chengdu Center of the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce and the Italian Belt and Road Research Institute have settled in the park.

The park is just one of the many international cooperation platforms in the Tianfu New Area.

The Tianfu New Area is shouldering the important mission of building an inland gateway with a bonded logistics center and other foreign exchange platforms.

Based on its positioning as an inland open portal, the Tianfu New Area is committed to creating a benchmark for an international business environment.

The Tianfu New Area will promote the liberalization and facilitation of investment and trade, establish a market investment environment in line with international rules, and take effective measures to attract all kinds of enterprises to invest and develop here, so that all enterprises will get the opportunity to participate in the competition on equal footing.

According to the plan, the Tianfu New Area will regularly publish a list of city opportunities and investment white papers, expand the construction of free trade zones, carry out stress tests around RCEP, CPTPP and other international rules, and formulate the Pre-entry National Treatment plus Negative List Management Implementation Plan for the Tianfu New Area in hopes of building an innovative sample of inland free trade zone.

In recent years, ecological livability has become the direction of urban development.

As the first place to propose the park city concept, the Tianfu New Area focuses on the park city for the growth and development of new economy and new kinetic energy. It also strives to create a unique business environment for the long run.

The Tianfu New Area is enhancing the vitality of urban development and brightening people's lives with the characteristic business environment of a park city that is suitable for living and doing business.

"Choosing a city means choosing a way of life," said Wang Xucheng, manager of Trend Shop Subset. "I am very optimistic about the development concept of the park city in the Tianfu New Area and it has always been my original intention to open a store here."

"People, city, environment and industry are highly harmonious and unified in the park city's management," Wang added.

"I can fully enjoy the policy dividends of innovation and entrepreneurship as well as a convenient urban life in the environment."

The Xinglonghu bookstore in the Tianfu New Area is expected to be complete this year.

Wang Zhongxun, vice-president of Yuncong Technology Group, also feels the Tianfu New Area has strong development potential and momentum in commercial resources, emerging industries, and technological innovation.

As a result, Yuncong Technology Group has been devoted to the construction of smart cities in the area, integrating the concept and technology of human-machine collaboration into all scenes of urban life, and building a harmonious, warm, accessible and smart life for people.

The plan says that the Tianfu New Area will adhere to the bottom line of 70.1 percent of ecological land, creating a world-leading "city in the park".

In the future, the Tianfu New Area will take the construction of a park city that implements the new development concept in its overall direction while continuing to release new scenarios and products to the world, and aim to gather the world's brightest minds and technologies together.

The plan proposes to create a fair and just legal protection environment while also establishing a legal protection system based on the rule of law.

It aims to improve the quality and efficiency of trial execution, increase the protection of intellectual property rights, and protect the legitimate rights and interests of various market entities in accordance with the law.

The creation of a high-level modern legal gathering area has become a highlight of the rule of law construction in the Tianfu New Area.

According to the relevant person in charge of the administrative examination and approval bureau of the Tianfu New Area, the Tianfu Central Legal Affairs District will be built into one of the country's first legal platforms with an international influence.

In February, the Tianfu Central Legal Affairs District, as the country's first provincial-level modern legal affairs gathering area, started operations.
