It signed an agreement with three firms: Chongqing Yufu Asset Management Group; Ping An Insurance; and Tus-Holdings, which operates and manages the Tsinghua University Science Park.

It will also invest in enterprises tapping Sino-Singapore expertise and experience to enhance the transportation logistics and info-communications infrastructure in Chongqing and other parts of western China.
