Over the past decade, the Guizhou Inland Open Economy Pilot Zone is widely said to have achieved remarkable results and the trading patterns of Guiyang city and the nearby Guian New Area – located in Southwest China's Guizhou province – have been fundamentally reshaped.
The regular operations of the China-Europe Railway Express and the Guiyang International Inland Port have made it easier for Guiyang's import and export trade to clear customs.
An open trading platform has gradually developed – with Guian New Area, the Guiyang High-tech Industrial Development Zone, the Guiyang Economic and Technological Development Zone, Guiyang Comprehensive Bonded Area and Guizhou Shuanglong Airport Economic Development Zone acting as carriers.
This has attracted a large number of high-quality projects and enterprises, such as Guiyang Hisense Electronics Co and COFCO Coca Cola (Guizhou) Co.
In addition, since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Guiyang and Guian have made every effort to break through traffic bottlenecks that have materialized. Guiyang Longdongbao International Airport ranks among the 20-million-level passengers per year large and busy airports, while rail transit lines 1 and 2 have been completed and put into operation and the Kaiyang Port Area of Guiyang Port was opened to navigation.
Guiyang and Guian have benefitted from the continued staging of the China International Big Data Industry Expo, the Eco Forum Global Guiyang, the Guizhou Wine Expo, China ASEAN Education Cooperation Week and other major activities.
Through them, the two have carried out trade exchanges with 192 countries and regions in recent years, generating a total of 389.3 billion yuan ($53.28 million) in foreign trade imports and exports, with an average annual growth of 7.62 percent.
