CHENGDU, March 27 (Xinhua) -- A ceremony marking the start of construction on 1,416 projects with a total investment of 714.2 billion yuan (about 101 billion U.S. dollars) was held in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province, on Thursday.

In breakdown, there are 395 infrastructure projects with a total investment of 206.7 billion yuan and 694 industrial projects with a total investment of 340.8 billion yuan.

Among the projects, there are 46 highway transportation projects with a total length of 939 kilometers involving total investment of 50.8 billion yuan.

The start of these major projects will provide support for Sichuan to transform its economic development model, optimize its economic structure, and transform its growth momentum.

For example, a smart wearable products R&D and manufacturing base with an investment of 10 billion yuan will be built in Chengdu Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone.

It is reported that the zone and Foxconn signed a draft agreement in 2019 to announce the investment project. The base is designed to occupy 100,000 square meters. The project will help promote Chengdu's further participation in the division of labor in global electronic information industry.  (Edited by Hu Pingchao with Xinhua Silk Road, hupingchao@xinhua.org)
