As the first academic monograph on the West Triangle Economic Zone (WTEZ), this book systemically analyzes the development of the WTEZ by exploring the feasibility, the methods and the timeline of its formation. With the gradual deepening of reform, China’s regional economy will experience a transition from non-balanced development to balanced development, which gives rise to the growth of Midwest China. It provides an in-depth exploration of industrial development, spatial strategy, transportation development, urban-rural coordination and enclave economy from the perspectives of integration and innovation. The author concludes by offering relevant proposals for building an integrated system in the WTEZ.

2. Comprehensive coverage of the development of the WTEZ from transportation infrastructure, industrial pattern, urban layout to urban-rural coordination
3. Constructive suggestions on building the WTEZ into the fourth growth pole of China
