To date, 10 airports have been put into service at the province's ethnic minority areas. Four ethnic autonomous prefectures now have access to high-speed railways. And expressways reach all of the eight ethnic autonomous prefectures in the province, according to the province's government.

Mail can be delivered to every village at the ethnic minority areas as asphalt roads have been constructed.

The network of 4G and broadband services, as well as electricity, is available in every administrative village, according to the government.
