3.3.2 About the parks/zones hosting the industry

The physical planning for the auto industry in Chengdu is One Zone/District and Three Points/Parks. In line with the One District by One Industry requirement, the newly established whole vehicle and key parts manufacturing facilities will be located at the core zone (Chengdu Economic Development Zone). 1) The core zone (Chengdu Economic Development Zone) Companies led by Chengdu FAW Motor, Sichuan FAW TOYOTA Motor and Chengdu Gaoyuan Motor will establish their whole vehicle and parts manufacturing facilities in Chengdu Economic Development Zone. ⅰ venue for whole vehicle manufacturing activities 10.5 square kilometers of land will be constructed at the new south area of Chengdu Economic Development Zone for the manufacturing of whole vehicles. ⅱ parts and components park 5.8 square kilometers of land will be constructed in Chengdu Economic Development Zone as a parts and components manufacturing park. ⅲ logistics park for the auto manufacturing activities 1.2 square kilometers of land will be constructed in Chengdu Economic Development

Zone as a logistics park. 2) Truck manufacturing site (at Qingbaijiang District) Led by Chengdu Wangpai Motor Group, a truck and complementary parts manufacturing park/site will be constructed in Qingbaijiang District. 3) Bus manufacturing site (at Wenjiang District and Pi County) ⅰ Support the growth of Nanjun Automobile Co., Ltd. ⅱ Support the growth of Chengdu Bus Co., Ltd.

4. Impact of Wenchuan Earthquake on the industry growth of Chengdu
4.1 Impact of Wenchuan Earthquake on Chengdu The parts of Dujiangyan, Pengzhou and Chongzhou city of Chengdu Metropolis which were close to the earthquake fault/fracture belt suffered great loss during the Wenchuan Earthquake with 4304 people killed and 95.84 billion yuan of direct economic loss resulted. However, the GDP of the three cities combined only accounted for 9% of the total GDP of Chengdu in 2007. The main downtown districts and the major industrial zones/parks experienced very little damage; and expect for those in these seriously damaged areas, the businesses in other places of Chengdu suffered very little loss. And by June 2nd, 2008, 94.82% of large-scale industrial enterprises in Chengdu had resumed their normal production activities. Experts’ comments: “Since the energy accumulated in the earth surface has been released during the Wenchuan Earthquake, the city of Chengdu will not see any major earthquake beyond 8 degrees in the future 200 years. Chengdu is safe for at least 200 years.”

-- Professor Liu Baojun, a famous geologist and member of Chinese Academy of Sciences and Technologies “The slowness of the slipping of the faults near Mount Longmen would prolong the cycle of strong earthquake reoccurring; therefore, it is safe to say that it will take at least 3 000 to 5 000 years for a major earthquake beyond 8 degrees to happen around the Mount Longmen faults.” -- Zhang Peizhen, head of Institute of Geology China Seismological Bureau, team leader of the South-North Earthquake Formation Research Team of China Wenchuan Earthquake Experts Committee
4.2 Impact of Wenchuan Earthquake on the auto industry of Chengdu 4.2.1 Little short-term impact

In general, the earthquake did not bring any direct major impact on the production and manufacturing activities of auto enterprises in Chengdu. Most of the companies experienced very little damage which is restricted to cracks on the factory walls and glass windows. Though many enterprises stopped working or producing temporarily after the earthquake, most of them soon resumed production or facility construction at the time between May 13 th and May 16th. Generally, no auto enterprises are located at the seriously hit places such as Pengzhou, Chongzhou, Qionglai and Dayi.
4.2.2 Stimulation on medium and long term growth

Sichuan province faces massive work in post-quake reconstruction that is projected to take 8 years, the first 3 years between 2008 and 2010 being recovery and reconstruction phase, and the 5 years between 2011 and 2015 being development and enhancement phase. The total investment in the post-quake reconstruction in Sichuan is 1 000 billion yuan. Consequentially, as the reconstruction work unfolds, the vehicle and engineering machinery manufacturing industry in Chengdu will see new growth opportunities, especially in the truck, specialized vehicles, engineering and construction machinery markets. Furthermore, because passenger cars, MPVs and SUVs played a significant role in the earthquake self-protection and voluntary rescue activities, the citizens have become eager to purchase these vehicles, triggering market demands and bringing prospects for the growth of passenger vehicle industry.
