Hohhot city – capital of North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region – has been promoting its regional development vigorously, with steps taken in six major industrial clusters, according to local media reports.
The industrial clusters operate in the dairy sector, as well as in electronics information technology, new materials and modern equipment manufacturing, biomedicines, the modern chemicals industry and clean energy.
As China's dairy capital, Hohhot has recorded the operating income for its dairy industry supply chain topping 220 billion yuan ($32 billion). It comes as no surprise then that the city's dairy sector has entered the national advanced manufacturing cluster list.

The electronics information technology industry is also developing rapidly. Financial data center projects for the Bank of China, the Agricultural Bank of China and the Rural Credit Cooperatives – as well as second-phase data center projects for telcos China Mobile and China Telecom – are accelerating their construction.
In the new materials and modern equipment manufacturing industry, Hohhot has built the Zhonghuan Industrial City project with an investment of 20.6 billion yuan. It has also cultivated a number of leading companies such as Huayao Optoelectronics and Zhongli New Materials.
In the biomedical sector, Hohhot is home to leading domestic companies such as Jinyu Bio-Technology Co, Kingdomway Group and Jinhe Biotechnology Co.
The transformation of "energy and chemicals integration" in the modern chemicals industry is accelerating and projects such as the Jiutai ethylene glycol project have now started production.
In addition, the development of the clean energy industry is on the fast track. Envision's 400,000-kilowatt peak carbon demonstration base and Tianneng Heavy Industry's 150,000-kilowatt wind power project have been completed.
