A train carrying more than 1,100 tons of chemical products departed Guoyuan Port, Liangjiang New Area on February 20 and set out to Duisburg, Germany, through China-Europe Railway Express.
Situated at the connecting point of“Belt and Road” and the Yangtze River Economic Belt, the port sees the regular operation of China-Europe Railway Express (Chengdu-Chongqing) and New Western Land-sea Corridor with more than 600 trains operated in 2021, latest data show.
It is China’s largest inland river logistic port that integrates multi-modal transportation, including waterway, railway, and roads.
"Chemicals, car parts, motorcycle parts, and wood materials are currently the main products exported from Guoyuan Port. The demand has been soaring up. We saw year-on-year growth of 50% during the Spring Festival of 2022,” Xu Wenjun, an official from the port’s international logistics company, said.
The need for flexible display will experience a massive increase soon, as more emerging applications like smartphones, wearable devices, and ICVs (Intelligent connected vehicles) are accepted by customers, said Liu Xiaodong, chairman of the company.
BOE Technology invested 46.5 billion yuan (about $7.35 billion) for this opportunity, developing a new AMOLED (Active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) flexible production line in its Chongqing factory. This production line, which has been operated since late December 2021, will provide cutting-edged flexible display solutions for small and medium-sized electronic devices that target the high-end market.
Chongqing is the core base of BOE Technology for its display industry and the strategical base for the Internet of Things. Other than its 6th generation AMOLED production line, the company has implemented the other five projects, including its new TFT-LCD product line and an innovation center for developing innovative systems, with over 86 billion yuan ($13.6 billion) of investments.
Liangjiang New Area is the first national-level new area in inland China. It shoulders the vital mission to empower Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle and play a leading role in China’s Western Development Strategy.
“Liangjiang New Area will keep promoting innovation as the top priority, and actively explore emerging fields like big data smartization, to transfer technological advantage to industrial advantage,” said Duan Chenggang, a member of the Standing Committee of Chongqing CPC Municipal Committee, secretary of the Liangjiang New Area Party Work Committee.
