BEIJING - One of the final stages of a railway linking Kunming in south-western Yunnan with Vietnam has become operational. The railway, between Yuxi and Mengzi, both in Yunnan, is part of the Eastern line of the planned Pan-Asia Railway Network which will provide rail links from China to Singapore. The railway is on track to open within the year. The rail link is planned to open up China’s south west to greater trade with ASEAN, which could make Kunming an ASEAN-focussed regional economic hub.
