This chapter discusses the economic development of Inner Mongolia, China’s oldest ethnic minority autonomous region. Since China’s opening up and reform, Inner Mongolia’s economy has seen rapid growth, structural optimization, increased efficiency, and a continuous increase in overall strength. From 2002 to 2011, the economy grew from 172.5 billion yuan to 1.4246 trillion yuan — the largest improvement among China’s five autonomous regions, as well as the second of China’s twelve western provinces and cities to achieve an economy of one trillion yuan. Infrastructure projects and welfare projects are described, and recommendations to improve the region’s development are presented.

Keywords:   economic development, economic policy, regional economy, western provinces
