The Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region signed several cooperation agreements with Shanghai related to culture and tourism, agriculture and commerce, and promoted its magnificent grassland scenery and agricultural products to Shanghai residents.
These include nine cultural and tourism agreements with a total investment of 1.5 billion yuan (US$231 million) signed on Wednesday, as well as four projects in agriculture and animal husbandry.
The Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region Culture and Tourism Department and Shanghai Administration of Culture and Tourism reached a cooperation agreement as well.
