nei-chiang

city, southeastern Sichuan sheng (province), south-central China. Situated on the Tuo River, it is also at the junction of the Chengdu-Chongqing railway and the southern branchline to Yibin (later extended to Kunming, Yunnan province). These railways were completed in the 1950s and made Neijiang an important transportation and commercial centre. The Tuo River is navigable year-round. The expressways built in the 1990s provide the city with further access to Chengdu and Yibin in Sichuan and to Chongqing municipality.
