Yunnan is a poor, densely populated province with a population of 46 million. Because it is landlocked and mountainous,trade with other provinces and foreign countries involves transportation over long distances, whcih makes its products less competitive. These are still large pockets of poverty because of inadequate road access, limited land availability for agriculture, and cultural barreirsto out-migration. In 2011, 27% of Yunnan's rural population was considered poor, using the PRC's official poverty line of CNY2,300 per year.
