FOUR checkpoints in southwestern China's Guangxi province have been listed in the national checkpoint expansion plan 2013 and two ones listed in the new "open up" plan, according to Guangxi port administration office, reports Xinhua.
The four checkpoints are waterway ports including Fangchenggang, Wuzhou, Shuikou and Dongxing, while the two others are road checkpoints, Shuolong and Tongzhong.
On a trip to the area, State Council Premier Li Keqiang said China's central and western region will expand the "open up plan" to the south and the west along with the acceleration of the transfer of industry from east to west.
Guangxi, he said, would be the point from where hinterland development would proceed as it was the only province with coastal ports.
A total number of 36 checkpoints in China this year will be expanded or open for service, including 14 road checkpoints, 14 waterway ports and eight air checkpoints.
