The festival will build the reputations of local farm produce and develop agriculture, especially vegetables, as well as contribute to the government’s “vegetable basket”, a project to enrich food supplies by increasing the production of foodstuffs, according to the organizers.

A distribution center for local vegetables will be opened by the association and a logistics park in Hohhot, local authorities say.

Farmers in Inner Mongolia have been increasingly enthusiastic in planting vegetables, and the region has seen a rapid vegetable growth in recent years.
