The city aims to foster high-tech industries for better development

Hohhot, capital of the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, aims to take the lead in fostering new quality productive forces, according to He Haidong, mayor of the city.

In an exclusive interview with China Daily, he said Hohhot has the conditions to spur new quality productive forces, as it has, for example, 70 percent of the higher education institutions in Inner Mongolia, 50 percent of its academic institutes and 30 percent of new and high-tech enterprises.

The region has six pillar industrial clusters: dairy, electronic information and technology, biomedicine, new materials and equipment manufacturing, new energy, and modern chemical industries, he said.

According to the local government work report, the total revenue of the dairy industry in Hohhot exceeded 256 billion yuan ($36.5 billion) last year, up 14 percent year-on-year.

The city also ranked 15th in the country in terms of computing capacity and successfully held the China Green Computing Conference last year.
