In 2016, Ordos invested 597.7 billion yuan ($86.9 billion) in a total of 210 industrial projects, and introduced foreign capital of 13.4 billion yuan, ranking first among regional cities and leagues.

With an increase of 80 percent in import and export trade, Ordos has ascended into the top 100 Chinese cities for foreign trade.

It also holds proven coal reserves of 201.7 billion tons, accounting for 16.7 percent of China's total. In addition, it's proven that the city has 6.5 billion tons of kaolinite, around 50 percent of all national provinces'.
