By : Kunming|Updated: 2010-08-06

The Central Yunnan Urban Agglomeration Programming Revision 2009-2030 is expected to be released soon. According to the plan, Kunming, Qujing, Yuxi and Chuxiong City will be put into the same urban area. In other words, people who live in the 4 cities will feel that they live in the same city. Road and railway network will link the 4 together with strong convenience. The 4 cities will also expect to share the same phone code, which means calling a person who lives in the 3 other cities from Kunming will not be charged as long distance phone calls.

Kunming: an international modern city and the center of Yunnan Province

As the political, economic, communications and cultural centre of Yunnan, and the seat of the provincial government, Kunming is the center of the Central Yunnan Urban Agglomeration.

Its economic importance derives from its geographical position. Located near the border with Southeastern Asian countries, it serves as a transportation hub in Southwest China, and linked by rail to Vietnam and by road to Burma and Laos. This positioning also makes it an important trade center in this region of China.

With a strong industrial base and excellent location and transportation advantages, it will focus on industries such as services, commerce and trade, manufacturing, transportation and logistics to build itself into the most important industrial city of Yunnan Province.
