Kunming and the world

Updated: August 9, 2021

Kunming has plentiful natural and cultural landscapes due to its long history and unique geological structure. It's a multifunctional international tourism city centered on its World Expo and featuring natural scenery and folk customs. 

Kunming, as the capital of Yunnan province and one of the central cities in the southwest region, is a nationally famous historical and cultural city and an important national tourism and business city.  

The 11th CPC Kunming Municipal Congress proposed to "build Kunming into a regional international central city based in southwest China, connecting with the whole country and radiating all over South and Southeast Asia". The Program for Building Kunming into a Regional International Central City (2017-2030), reviewed and approved at the third plenary session of the 11th CPC Kunming Municipal Committee, has not only identified the approach of building a regional international integrated hub, accelerating the construction of "four centers", and improving "three brands" across the board, but also drawn up timetables and roadmaps, and set well-defined priorities.
