The fourth session of the 13th People's Congress of Inner Mongolia autonomous region opened a media interview channel for deputies on the evening of Jan 27, the first time for Inner Mongolia to open such a service.
Eight deputies, including Tang Yi, Gong Mingzhu, Liu Shuhua and Chen Gongming, partook in media interviews and responded to social concerns on hot topics, including environmental conditions, industrial revitalization and public cultural services.
Deputy Tang Yi, also the mayor of Wuhai city, introduced Wuhai’s successes in water purification, blue sky protection and ecological enhancement in 2020.
Liu added that his city would continue to strengthen comprehensive environmental management in the current year.
Chen Gongming, Party secretary of Bayannuur’s Urad Front Banner, said that since 2018, Bayannuur has adhered to the comprehensive ecological treatment of forests, fields and grassland areas, lakes and other water bodies.

After more than two years of hard work, the overall water quality of the city’s Wuliangsu Lake has steadily risen from below the fifth grade to meet the fifth-grade standards (China classifies its water quality into five grades, with the first grade representing the highest level).
The number of bird species that inhabit and breed at Wuliangsu Lake has increased from 180 in the past to more than 260 at present.
Deputy Hu Chengdong, from Taibus Banner of Xiliin Gol League, said that Taibus Banner shook off poverty during the recently finished 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-20) and is no longer a national-level poverty-stricken banner.
During the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25), Taibus Banner is committed to becoming the regional center of Xiliin Gol League and the relocation site of industries transferred from the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.
