The Plan is formulated with sufficient basis, clear thinking, reasonable structure, comprehensive content and operability. It is of great significance for Ulanqab to build an ecological security barrier in the north, create a beautiful landscape of China’s northern Xinjiang, and promote the construction of ecological civilization. It can be used as a guiding basis for Ulanqab to establish a national ecological civilization construction demonstration city.
