Journalists tour Inner Mongolia

Category:[world] [2008Olympics] [Beijing]

Blue skies, rows of trees and pleasant grassland caught the eyes of three dozen journalists from 19 foreign media during a two-day news coverage in Inner Mongolia over the weekend at the invitation of the Beijing Olympic Media Center.

Local residents informed them about their afforestation efforts, which aim at stopping desertification and stand storms. What they are doing is basically to build a "protective screen" for Beijing.

They learned among other things that since the farmers started converting their cereal plots into woods, annual per capita income in Fuquan Village of Taibus Banner has grown to 2,610 yuan in 2006, against less than 700 when they were relocated.

Since the beginning of this year, the media center has organized several trips for the foreign media.
