The Hulunbeier International Green Development Conference opened in north 
China's Hulunbeier City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region on Aug. 26. The 
conference, with a theme of exploring a new high-quality development approach 
prioritizing ecological protection and green growth, attracted more than 300 
experts from home and abroad to seek paths for a green future.

With a large area of primitive ecological areas, Inner Mongolia is the largest 
and most comprehensive ecological functional area in northern China, according 
to Bu Xiaolin, deputy secretary of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region CPC 
committee and chairperson of the autonomous region.

Bu said the region's efforts to explore a new high-quality development approach 
prioritizing ecological protection and green growth would entail all-round 
changes in the development concept, path, mode and objectives, and she looked 
forward to insightful advice and proposals from attending experts and 
entrepreneurs.

The conference helps set up a platform for green development cooperation among 
countries, regions and enterprises, and enables joint development of systems, 
mechanisms and paths of green industry growth, featuring an action initiative, 
green partner development, joint construction of international ecological 
cooperation demonstration parks, development of whole industrial chain 
ecological governance model, and a report on green development. 

Hulunbeier, with a total area of 253,000 square kilometers, is known as "the 
jasper in north China" and a "green pure land". It is one of the areas with 
intact original ecology in China, an important part of the northeast Asia 
biosphere, and a key natural ecological barrier for Inner Mongolia, northeast 
China and even the whole country. The local forest ecosystem is home to a large 
number of precious, rare and endangered animal and plant species. The function 
value of local biodiversity conservation climbed to 135.867 billion yuan (about 
18.97 billion U.S. dollars) in 2016.
