I. Overview of Ningxia
Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, or “Ning” for short, is the only provincial-level Hui autonomous region in China. It was established as Ningxia province in 1929 and founded as Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region on Oct. 25, 1958. Currently, Ningxia has jurisdiction over five municipal cities including Yinchuan, Shizuishan, Wuzhong, Guyuan and Zhongwei, and 22 counties (county-level cities or districts). Yinchuan is the capital city as well as the political, economic and cultural center of Ningxia. By the end of 2014, the total population of Ningxia is 6.6154 million, of which Hui people are 2.3614 million, accounting for 35.7% of the total population. In 2014, gross regional domestic product reached RMB 275.21 billion yuan and local public finance budget income reached RMB 33.98 billion yuan.
Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region is located in the northwest of People’s Republic of China, on the upper and middle reaches of the Yellow River. It covers an area of 66, 400 km2, from 35°14’ N to 39°23’ N and 104°17’ E to 107°39’ E. The altitude of Ningxia is 1090-2900 meters. Ningxia is narrow from east to west and long from north to south, the latitude is high in the south and low in the north, with a drop of nearly 1000 m like ladders. Ningxia Plain--China’s New Top 10 Tianfu (self-sufficient and strategically located region), located in the north, has 14 counties (cities or districts) which have relatively high economic development level. The southern part belongs to loess plateau and desertification grassland, and there are 8 counties (cities or districts) here. With hills and mountains as the main terrain, this area accounts for 59% of the total area in Ningxia.
Ningxia has been a vital pass as well as an important commercial port of the old Silk Road since ancient times. Guyuan ancient city was an important city along the Silk Road in the Sui and Tang Dynasties. The State Council approved to construct the Pilot Area for Inland Open Economy and Yinchuan Comprehensive Bonded Zone and bestowed the policy of “the first try enjoying preferential policies”. In November, 2014, China has passed the “Strategic Plan for the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road” (referred to as “one belt and one road”), which puts Ningxia as a “Pilot Area for Inland Open Economy for the exchanges and cooperation with Arab states and Muslim regions, and China-Arab States Expo will exert its influence as a platform”; Yinchuan was positioned as the “major node in the Silk Road Economic Belt”. Recently, the state has clearly put Ningxia among one of the three provinces for the “construction and operation of large or very large data center”. Ningxia has successfully organized 3 China-Arab States Economic Forums and one China-Arab States Expo, and the 2nd China-Arab States Expo is to be held in September, 2015.
The Yellow River flows through the northern 10 counties (cities, districts) of Ningxia for 397 km. With gravity irrigation, it is said that “the Yellow River only enriches Ningxia” since ancient times. Now Ningixia has 16.6 million mu of farmland, becoming one of the 8 provinces with over 10 million mu of wasteland which is suitable for farming and one of China’s 10 pastoral areas. Ningxia is the enrichment region of Yellow River water resources. In the 3rd century BC, Qin Dynasty started reclamation and irrigation construction here, creating the history of Yellow River irrigation. Qin canal, Han canal and Tang canal still have an important role, and the Yellow River irrigation area is one of China’s 12 commodity grain production bases. With adequate light and heat resources, and large temperature difference between day and night, Ningxia is conducive to crop growth and nutrient accumulation. Crops here mainly include wheat, rice and corn. In 2014, generating capacity of Ningxia is 120.12 billion kilowatts hours, with per capital ranking the 1st nationwide. Ningxia is rich in coal resources and has proven reserves of 46.18 billion tons, ranking the 6th nationwide. The high-quality anthracite—Taixi coal enjoys a good reputation in both domestic and international markets. Ningdong Energy Chemical Base is one of the largest coal production bases with 1.3 billion tons in China.
Ningxia has not only the splendid frontier scenery, but also the beautiful scenery like the area south of the Yangtze River. The ancient Yellow River culture, the mysterious Xixia civilization, the vast desert landscape, the picturesque lakes in the frontier and the rich Hui culture and custom enhance each other’s beauty. Ningxia has been named as “An Oasis in the Hinterland, Amazing Ningxia and Town of Hui People”. Scenic spots like Shapotou, the Sand Lake, Western Studio and Helan Mountain Rock Painting are enchanting and distinctive. Shuidonggou relic is a miniature of prehistoric Chinese civilization, which attracts lots of tourists from both home and abroad.
 “Ningxia Spatial Development Strategy”, which was compiled by the Government of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, is the grand plan of the spatial development in Ningixia; and it is adopted through legislative procedures. The city belt along the Yellow River and cities on the golden banks of the Yellow River as well as regional hub cities in southern Ningxia are the main battlefield of the new urbanization in Ningxia. Based on these areas, Ningxia is building the great Yinchuan metropolitan area consisted of Yinchuan, Wuzhong and Ningdong; and developing the sub-central cities of Shizuishan, Guyuan and Zhongwei in order to drive the coordinated development of all the large, medium or small towns in Ningxia. Yinchuan will highlight its characteristics as an open and modernized city and focus on the development of high-end service industries and strategic emerging industries. Shizuishan will utilize its features as an industrial city and develop equipment manufacturing, new materials and fine chemical industries. Wuzhong will exhibit the features as a town of Hui people and focus on the development of Halal food, Muslim products, instruments, new materials and modern manufacturing industries.
