Opening up changes Yunnan's int'l transportation

Opening up changes Yunnan's int'l transportation
China’s Mohan Landport on the Sino-Lao Border Photo by Zhang Tong

When our reporter travelled through lush tropical rainforests to the Mengla (Mohan) National Key Development and Opening-up Experimental Zone in Yunnan, passengers, cars, trucks, and buses all passed through the border checkpoint in an orderly manner.

According to a local villager, before reform and opening up, Mohan was just a mysterious and desolate town. It was not until the 1990s that the port began to rapidly develop.

At a Laotian bus station on the Kunming-Bangkok Highway, our reporter saw many tourists from China. In 2013, the Houayxay Bridge on the Mekong River was completed and opened to traffic. Ever since then, a growing number of passengers and cargo transports ply this international thoroughfare. The flow of people and goods has attracted many strong Chinese transportation companies to “go out”, including the Yunnan Golden Peacock Transportation Group.

Since reform and opening up, international road transportation networks emanating from Yunnan Province headed in a new direction. In 1993, a bus transport agreement was signed between China and Laos. Over the past 25 years, the province’s transportation infrastructure has continuously improved, and passenger and freight traffic between Yunnan and Laos has been growing commensurately. As the transportation management, service and interdepartmental collaboration continue to improve, bilateral and multilateral relations and friendly exchanges between China and neighbouring countries have expanded.

So far, the province has opened 18 highway ports to neighbouring countries and 28 passenger and cargo transportation lines into Vietnam and Laos.  In 2017, 2.53 million passengers and 7.34 million tonnes of cargo have been transported between the province and its neighbouring Southeast Asian countries.
