In Thursday's Papers: Ordos Gov't Directs Migration to Fill in Ghost Towns, New Targets Set to Improve Air Quality


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 exact number of migrants the government plan involves has not been announced.
