Inner Mongolia autonomous region’s “Grassland Talents” Program has cultivated and introduced 712 leading professionals since it was launched in 2010.

Thanks to the program, the region has cultivated 175 innovative teams involving fields of agriculture, energy, new chemicals, equipment manufacturing and non-ferrous metal production as well as 42 leading bases for innovation and business starting, such as Baotou Rare Earth High-Tech Zone. Thirteen of the program’s talents were chosen for the Recruitment Program of Global Experts (or Thousand Talents Program, which aims to recruit top overseas scientists and talent back to China).

The investment in the program has increased from 35 million yuan ($5.49 million) to 100 million yuan by 2014.
