Chongqing is located in southwest China. It is known colloquially as River City, Fog City, and more famously as Mountain City. As one of the four municipalities directly under the Central Government of China, and being located at the important junction of the “Belt and Road” and the Yangtze River Economic Belt and the inland open highland, Chongqing has become the main economic, financial, scientific, technological, shipping and trade logistics centre in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. Porsche has been continuously focussing on the devel-opment of Chongqing. Chongqing has also become a very important market for Porsche. With the grand opening of the Porsche Centre Chongqing Yuzhong, Porsche's dealer network in the southwest region has been further improved, sales and service levels have been further enhanced and brand influence in the local market has been further strengthened.
Mr. Speed Guo, General Manager of Porsche Centre Chongqing Yuzhong, said: “As the fourth authorised Porsche dealer in Chongqing, the Porsche Centre Chongqing Yuzhong is fully operational now and fully demonstrates Porsche’s firm confidence in the prosperous de-velopment prospects of Chongqing. As an important partner of Porsche China, we are also confident in the Porsche brand. We will adhere to the core values of ‘Enthusiasm, Difference, Excellence, Team spirit’ and provide comprehensive consultation and the highest quality ser-vice experience for every Porsche customer in Chongqing and the surrounding areas."
