Chengdu is located in western China and is the capital of Sichuan province. With over 10 million people Chengdu is one of China's largest cities. Chengdu is an integral part of the Sichuan economy responsible for an estimated 30% of Sichuan's GDP. In the past Chengdu had been the most influential city in western China both politically and economically but since Chongqing was elevated to a provincial municipality it has been somewhat overtaken by Chongqing. Chengdu is part of what is referred to as the 'western triangle development zone' which includes Chengdu, Chongqing and Xian.

Chengdu's laid back culture, green environment and improving infrastructure, its first subway line became operational in late 2010 have helped to attract a large amount of business to bolster its traditional commercial and tourism industries. It also has a prosperous manufacturing sector where over 100 of the world’s top 500 largest corporations have a presence, including Intel, Sony, Toyota, Motorola, IBM, Nokia, Siemens, Canon and Microsoft, all of which operate assembly lines and/or research and development centers in Chengdu.
