Full coverage: First Lancang-Mekong Cooperation Leaders' Meeting

As the key hub and outpost linking Southwest China and Southeast Asia, Xishuangbanna Dai autonomous prefecture has a significant position and role in the Lancang-Mekong river cooperation framework.

Xishuangbanna, the tropical south of China's Yunnan province, has a great deal of the original cultural and biological diversity.
For thousands of years, people here have lived on mono-culture rubber and banana.....but that's about to change.

With the unique geographic location and the rich ethnic culture, Xishuangbanna stands out as the emerging gateway for Lancang-Mekong river cooperation. Over the past few years, dozens of projects have sprung up like never before.

The gold pagoda in the Gaozhuang tourism complex -- one of the most successful projects in the prefecture -- represents the region's ambitions; it's got everything you need to know about the Lancang-Mekong community: from architecture and costumes to religious and folk culture.

With special prominence being given to connectivity in the Lancang-Mekong river cooperation framework, the project has been really focusing on people-to-people exchanges. The offices of travel agencies and airline companies from the other Lancang-Mekong members are hoping for a spike in business.

As leaders of the six member countries draw up plans for future development, the complex is a living example of how connectivity can boost economic development. It also shows in the Lancang-Mekong framework, China has the experience and funds to enhance cooperation towards a shared prosperity.
