One of China's major agricultural production bases, Sichuan's major products include rice, wheat, and rapeseed and boasts Western China's largest base for pork production. The province is also a major industrial centre, with industries like coal, energy, iron and steel; its light industries include building materials, wood processing, food and silk processing. Despite having the largest proven reserves of natural gas, a large amount of Sichuan's natural gas production is transported to more developed, eastern provinces, and the province's own power use is in short supply.

As the economy grows, the province must now focus on growth outside of the capital, where cities face inadequate transport infrastructure and an expressway system that does not link many cities to each other. The local government plans on improving transportation linkages in cities in the northeast and south.

Sichuan's GDP grew 12.6% to RMB2.38 trillion in 2012.
