Lincang City is located in the south-western part of Yunnan province and shares its border with Myanmar for about 290 kilometres. Lincang is in the path of a shorter alternative route from Kunming to the Indian Ocean on the Kunming-Lincang (China)-Nashio-Kyauk Phyu (Myanmar) economic corridor. The Sino-Burmese cross-border area provides platform for bilateral trading, technical exchange, and logistic of goods for more than two decades and Lincang has an active interaction with neighbouring Myanmar.
