Southwestern China’s Chongqing is actively preparing to win a bidding to host the second Disneyland in the Chinese mainland, which Disney eyes in central and western China.

Before the construction of the Shanghai Disney Resort, the Disney Group has clarified in its agenda a blueprint for a new theme park in central and western China, said the municipality’s foreign trade and economic relations commission on the municipality government website this Monday, Chongqing Evening News reported.

“We attached great significance to Disney’s project in western China. Currently, we are actively preparing for a project to participate in the bidding. We believe that Disney’s new project will undergo comparison and assessment during the competition for the site selection. It is possible that our municipality will receive the project,” the commission added.

The remarks came in the form of a response to a local citizen’s suggestion to develop entertainment projects to boost local high-end tourism and improve the city’s global image.

“There is so far no project approval and review for the introduction of a Disneyland. It will still take time, but we hope to participate in the competition for site selection,” an anonymous official with the commission told the Chongqing Evening News.

Chongqing’s neighboring Sichuan province was also reportedly found involved in wooing Disneyland, as photos of what appeared to be official instructions for preparing to win the Disneyland project went viral last week. However, the Sichuan government has dismissed the alleged instructions, the Chongqing Morning Post reported.
