According to a report by The Diplomat on September 1st, 2021: A new rail line has brought China’s high-speed railway network to its border with Myanmar. The recently completed railway runs from Chengdu, the capital of China’s Sichuan Province, to Lincang, a prefecture-level city in Yunnan Province opposite the town of Chinshwehaw in Myanmar’s Shan State.

The border would become an important part of the “Belt and Road” Initiative (BRI) and would help to write a new chapter in the history of friendly relations between Myanmar and China, Yang Haodong, the CCP secretary in Lincang, said at the railway’s opening ceremony on August 25th.

Besides, the Chengdu-Lincang line marks a further step in the historic re-orientation of mainland Southeast Asia from its southern port cities toward the economic giant to their north.

Comment: All this shows the ambition of the CCP throughout the world.
