As the Chinese gateway of opening up to South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean region, Yunnan has seen fruitful economic cooperation and cultural exchanges with the neighboring countries, and its port economy in the border areas is thriving on the China-Myanmar Economic Corridor and the China-Vietnam international trains.

The Belt and Road media tour will take the reporters to the Mangshi airport and the Ruili port in Dehong, the Nanxihe port and the Honghe area of China (Yunnan) Pilot Free Trade Zone in Honghe, as well as the Qingshuihe port and the Nansan industrial park in Lincang.
