Elion Resources Group has accumulated a lot of experience in fighting desertification in the Kubuqi Desert from over 20 years' working here.

The group has invested over 2 billion yuan (285 million U.S. dollars) in the Kubuqi Desert over the last 22 years. Kubuqi desert now has five roads criss-cross a region which was once impossible to travel across.

Rivers and forests in the region have been spared from the harmful effects of desertification.

The desert's citizens have seen great benefits as well; desert reclamation projects have provided jobs and even spawned small towns in their wake.

The forum has attracted over 300 local and overseas participants.
