  Ecological Immigrations to return grass and forest



[ Xinhua New, September 25, 2002 ] Eastern Inner Mongolian Hingaan League Horchin Right Wing Front Banner Ulaan Mod Sumu Ariin-Ihaa Gachaa's herdsmen Bai Tie Zhuangs' are still herding. Because of the implementation of the "sealing up mountains and planting trees" policy, herdsmen of this area will be soon relocated from their lands where they have lived as nomadic people to Oboot New Immigrations Town. Locating on the hinterland of the Great Hingaan Mountain southern foothill, Ulaan Mod Sumu is being a target of the implementation of the "Ecological Immigration and Help-the-Poor" project. 216 herdsmen households are being planned to be relocated from the grassland to leave 5000 Mu land as "grass-and-forest-returning area".
