China's South-to-North vegetables transportation plan has been launched recently, and Yunnan has signed letters of intention to supply vegetables with some northern provinces.

In winter, it is too cold for vegetables to grow in North China so that South-to-North vegetables are quite necessary every year. Cauliflowers, cabbages, onions, potatoes, lettuces, tomatoes and capsicum are included. Usually, vegetables are stored well in the basements by eaters in the north.

In fact, Yunnan vegetables have been sold to 30 districts all over China, being asked for great demand by Shandong, Zhejiang, Shanxi, Sichuan provinces. Southeast Asian countries including Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam have been importing vegetables from Yunnan and so do South Korea, Japan and Russia.(Reporter:Tina He, editor:Minnie Mao)
