Thanks to abundant tourist resources, Yunnan has great competitive strengths in the tourism market. Kunming has also become an important transportation hub, offering more transition services to Southeast Asia, which is a force in pursuing the Belt and Road Initiative. The operation of these two routes has supported Yunnan to build a bridge for the interactive cooperation in Southeast Asia.

In addition, the operation of these two routes also has brought a driving force for growing tourist market of the Philippines. Manila is a major center for commerce, finance as well as tourism in the Philippines, and Cebu has a large share of tourist arrivals in the Philippines. Thus, the operation of these routes can broaden opportunity to increase tourist sources from southwest China, and moreover, achieve shared growth and mutually beneficial cooperation.
