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.

Being the nearest national land port from China to Thailand, Mohan Port locates in the southernmost point of Mengla County, Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province. Neighbouring Laos, Mohan Port is only 700 km to the capital of Laos – Vientiane.

With the official opening of the Kunming-Bangkok International Highway in 2008 and completion of the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area in January 2010, the location advantages of the Mohan Port have been further highlighted.
