Ordos Gov't Directs Migration to Fill in Ghost Towns
The government of Ordos has embarked on a campaign to resettle hundreds of thousands of local residents to fill in hugely vacant developed areas known as "ghost towns." The city has many residential areas which were developed in recent years when the local economy was experiencing a mining resources boom. The migration started with civil servants, students and factory workers, and will expand to all those currently residing in ecologically fragile regions near the desert, a local government official said. The exact number of migrants the government plan involves has not been announced.
