As the first academic monograph on the Western Economic Triangular Zone(WETZ), this book systemically analyzes the development of the WETZ by exploring the reasons, the methods and the timeline of its formation. With the gradual deepening of reform, Chinas regional economy will experience a transition from non-balanced development to balanced development, which gives rise to the growth of Midwest China. Using theoretical and empirical analyses and comparisons between strategic value and practical significance, the basis of development and growth potential of the WETZ are examined in an in-depth exploration of industrial development, spatial strategy, transportation development, urban-rural coordination and enclave economy from the perspectives of integration and innovation.
