  1. Leveraging the southern city’s natural connectivity linkages with Southeast Asia and growth hubs of Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Macao.
  2. The waterways of Xijiang River that flows through the city lead to the Pearl River and the South China Sea.
  3. In view of the vast potential of the greater Pearl River Delta region, Chinese authorities are developing the Pearl River-Xijiang River Economic Belt.
  4. When fully developed, the waterways would strongly reinforce Nanning’s state-of-the-art rail and road connectivity to the coast.
  5. Its prized geographic location is making the city the fulcrum of China’s access to the most dynamic zones of Southeast Asia.
