China has reached a landmark agreement with its Southeast Asian neighbors on oil shipping along the Mekong River.
The agreement with Laos, Myanmar and Thailand will see a trial program of processed oil shipping from May to December, said a maritime affairs official of southwest China’s Yunnan Province.
The river rises on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and flows through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam to the South China Sea. It is called Lancang River in China.
