Now there are more than 4500 enterprises in Chenghua District. Next year, the commercial complex will be built with an area of more than 300,000 square meters.

Zhou Qiwei, the Deputy Director of Jinniu District Bureau of Commerce, talked about the process of urban renewal in the area, and expressed that the area was endowed with rich elements and abundant carriers of available resources. The total amount of available land is 29.1 million mu, and the developable land resources ranked NO.1 among 5 urban districts.
