A three-year action plan has been formulated around six major industrial clusters in Hohhot.

The mayor said the city will make strides in developing the core area of the Hohhot-Baotou-Ordos National Independent Innovation Demonstration Zone.
In addition, Hohhot will aim to develop into a "prairie city", strengthen the comprehensive treatment of Daheihe, Xiaoheihe, and Hasuhai rivers and focus on pollution prevention and control.
It will also strive to become a clean energy demonstration city in North China.
