Since 2012, Southwest China's Guizhou province has seen a significant transformation in infrastructure, especially transportation infrastructure, which has contributed to the province's social and economic development.
Guizhou has established a transport network including expressways, high-speed railways and civil aviation, aiding poverty alleviation and social development and laying a solid foundation for high-quality development.
Guizhou has become a main channel of the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor and a hub of the Belt and Road Initiative. It has been integrated into the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Great Bay Area, the Yangtze River Economic Belt, and the Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle.
It has also realized the regular operation of the China Railway Express and connected with the China-Laos Railway, helping more companies go global.
In the future, Guizhou will focus on developing the service industry and improving living standards and infrastructure construction.
It will speed up the construction of a water transport system and regular-speed railways to reduce the time and cost of logistics. The province's railway network will become more intensive and supporting infrastructures such as industrial parks, water supply, warehousing, logistics and environmental protection will be boosted.
It will also promote the construction of major water source projects and water transmission and distribution networks to reduce water shortages.
In addition, it will improve sewage and garbage collection and treatment facilities, increase the collection and treatment rates of domestic sewage in urban areas, and incinerate rather than landfill urban and rural domestic garbage.
