[InKunming--Yunnan]  As China’s 16th border economic cooperation zone, the Lincang Border Economic Cooperation Zone in southwest Yunnan province was approved in 1992.

Since its inception in 2011, the Lincang economic zone has focused on cross-border trade, logistics, finance, tourism, equipment manufacturing and more, facilitating China-Myanmar cooperation.

Lincang City recently held the sixth border-trade fair, during which four projects worth 3.5 billion yuan was signed. Among them, the China Litian holding group invested in production of cars powered by renewable energy, and such investment was brought by the strong momentum of China-Myanmar cooperation.

Along with the openings and completions of the railways, highways, bridges and airports that surrounded the Lincang economic zone, the Myanmar government also pays increasing attention to the zone’s future.

In April 2016, Myanmar State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi approved the Kunlong-Qingshui River Special Economic Zone, following the 125 industrial park approved by the Myanmay Central Government. Such projects contributed to the buildup of the cross border Kunlong bridge.

Now, many China-Myanmar cooperative projects have been put into use, including the Yunnan-Myanmar Railway Museum, the Nansan Exhibition Center for Border Fair. The Mengding Joint-Check Point, the China-Myanmar Avenue, and the Ruijia Sino-Burmese International Agricultural Products Logistics Trade Center are under construction.
