Consul-General Christopher Lim's Blog - "Wenshan: An Australian company making a difference"  

"Over Easter, I had the pleasure of visiting Wenshan, a prefecture in Yunnan’s far south, right on the border with Vietnam.  Officially known as the Wenshan Zhuang and Miao Autonomous Prefecture, the region of 3.6 million people was celebrating 60 years since its establishment.  As one of China’s most diverse prefectures, Wenshan is home to 11 ethnic groups, not just the Zhuang and Miao mentioned in its title. A local saying tries to make sense of this diversity – The Han and Hui live in the towns, the Zhuang and Dai live on the water, the Miao and Dong live in the hills, and the Yao live in the bamboo groves!".
