SINGAPORE, Apr. 24 (Xinhua) -- Jiangjin District of southwest China’s Chongqing Municipality held its first investment promoting event in Singapore on April 24 to explore cooperation opportunities with Singapore and other ASEAN countries.

It is not only an important carrier for the industry transformation and upgrading of China’s western regions, but also a new gateway for Chongqing's opening-up to the outside world, according to Cheng Zhiyi, Secretary of Jiangjin District Party Committee.
