Thanks to the project, 80 villages have already been electrified in this year. Other public services facilities such as school buildings and safety reconstruction, clinics, rooms for cultural activities and chain stores are all going smoothly.

In addition to improving rural livelihood through the Ten Full Coverage project, Hohhot will develop rural industries in accordance to local conditions, in order to vitalize rural development and improve farmers’ incomes. More and more migrant workers returned to their hometown as local enterprises developed.
