In recent years, with Guangxi’s participation in booming regional and international cooperation, realization of China-ASEAN Free Trade Area, and the formulation of a comprehensive, wide-ranging and multi-layered pattern of exchanges with the outside world, Hechi city has inevitably come to the forefront of reform and opening-up, so it is also faced with unprecedented opportunities as well as challenges.
