Chongqing Share Transfer Center co-organized these activities. The activities included four theme activities, covering 25 districts and counties in Chongqing. More than 400 representatives from over 260 district-level governmental departments and 300 representatives from 220 to-be-listed companies participated in the activities. This event is an important measure for SZSE's western base to deeply serve the Chongqing capital market and help implement the development strategy of "Chengdu-Chongqing City Group". It has further deepened the exchange and cooperation between the capital market and the local governments and supported Chongqing's comprehensive and efficient use of the capital market platform to facilitate Chongqing's high-quality economic development.
The CPC Chongqing Committee and the Chongqing Municipal Government attach great importance to the financial training by local cadres, especially the work related to listing cultivation. They have been working hard to improve the listing service ability of local government departments, enrich the practical knowledge of the capital market, promote enterprises' use of the capital market to become bigger and stronger, and constantly improve the level of economic securitization. SZSE has always leveraged the advantages of the multi-tier capital market system, deepened its localized services in Chongqing, and actively promoted the development of Chongqing's capital market through measures such as listing cultivation and the construction of its western base.
