Source:   Time:

A protocol (draft) on inspection and quarantine requirements of import and export fruits passing through Kunming-Bangkok Highway was signed in Kunming, according to Kunming Daily.

The protocol has clearly defined the transportation route for import and export fruits between China and Thailand, namely, the line linking Mohan Port of Yunnan, the Houayxay and Boten Ports of Laos.

Up to now, about 20 countries are allowed to export over 20 varieties of admissionable fruits to China. In total, 23 types of fruits are allowed to enter China, making Thailand the biggest exporter of fruit to China.

Taken together, the volume of total imports and exports of goods passing through the Mohan Port reached 620,000 tons in 2010, an increase of 62 percent over 2009. The volume of trade reached $560 million, an increase of 55.3 percent over 2009. Besides, inbound and outbound travelers totaled 0.67 million.

Kunming-Bangkok Highway

The 1750-kilometer-long Kunming-Bangkok Highway, running from Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province, through Laos to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, is one of the four major links between China and Southeast Asia.

It reduces the travel time from Kunming to Mohan Port on the China-Laos border to 10 hours and halves the driving time from Kunming to Bangkok to 20 hours.
