What's more, the consequence of failing to alter its economic structure and develop new industries leaves public to deem that there is little sign to show the recovery of local economy. Some experts consider that the increasing number of corruption existing in China once made huge contributions to the prosperity of local economy. With the anti-corruption keeping going, it has the potential that the local economy will keep declining. Transportation The region's natural waterways provide transportation links with the surrounding area, and Yibin is also connected to Chongqing and Chengdu by rail and express highway. Yibin's proximity to the Yunnan and Guizhou borders also means that transportation to the provinces is available by rail and by bus.

Yibin Airport offers flights to Beijing, Guangzhou, Guiyang, Hangzhou, Kunming, Lhasa, Sanya, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Xi'an, and Yichang. Tourism There are several hot springs near Yibin, plus many other tourist attractions. Such attractions include the Bamboo Sea in Changning County and the Xingwen Stone Forest.

The most significant scenic resource is Mountain Park (dashan gongyuan,大山公园), which stretches for hundreds of kilometers. Notes
