Inner Mongolia Marks 70th Anniversary
August 8, Hohhot, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region: Dancers perform to celebrate the 70th founding anniversary of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
The region had a lot to celebrate on its 70th anniversary, including a society based on regional ethnic autonomy that is growing in prosperity. “The successful example of Inner Mongolia shows that regional ethnic autonomy is suitable for China,” remarked Yu Zhengsheng, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, the country’s top political adviser, when he led a 63-member national-level delegation to attend the main ceremony. The region, founded in 1947, was the first provincial-level ethnic autonomous region in China.
