Hohhot, capital city of North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region, has been ranked 66th in the Warton Economic Institute's 2020 list of the top 100 cities in China, according to local media reports.
The first three spots on the list were taken by Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, capital city of Guangdong province.
Alongside Hohhot, two other cities in Inner Mongolia made the list: Ordos, which ranked 46th, and Baotou, which was placed 76th.
Cities were selected with consideration of their GDP, household savings, scientific development, education, culture, healthcare and environmental protection outcomes. All the data came from the National Bureau of Statistics.
Formerly known as the Shanghai Institute of Economic Development Research, the Warton Economic Institute was founded in 1988 with the approval of the Shanghai municipal government as the first comprehensive research institute focusing on macroeconomics, regional economics and business development.
