Scenery around just a dry dusty soil. Occasionally seen are mostly dried herbs, very rarely green.
Suddenly the car that we were riding left the paved highway and a dusty dirt road into a narrow size. Once along the road village, we arrived at the new Muslim village in Wuzhong.

This is a small picture of the Muslim community in the land of China. In the province Ningxia, located in the west, as well as in the Xin Jiang province, we find a lot of Chinese Muslim community. History of Islam in China has since 1,300 years ago.
Ningxia is a region that was given special autonomy by the Government of China on 1958. In 2009, Ningxia autonomous region revenues by 20 billion yuan, while spending 40 billion yuan.

During 1985-1989, we built the Islamic Institute and has graduated 2,000 people. said the deputy head of the ethnic affairs commission of Ningxia autonomous region, the Rai Sheng.
Originally, Ningxia is far behind compared to the provincial and the cities of the east coast of China, developed the president at that time. Xiao premises Ping, a pilot city in China's eastern coast. However, in 10 years last, fairly rapid development of Ningxia. For a provincial capital, roads in the city of Yinchuan somewhat larger than the streets in Jakarta that the more crowded and traffic jams everywhere.
Deputy head of development and reform commission Ningxia autonomous region, Guo Bingchen, states in the west China development policy is strategic government after the construction of the east region china.

Foreign investment apda 1999 only 1.98 billion U.S. dollars, but in 2009 be 16.9 billion U.S. dollars. Rose seven-fold. Bingchen Guo said.
If you choose air transportation, when about to land at airport Yinchuan and looked out the plane window, you will be treated to views of the arid desert lands and large holes. That middle ground is crunching build Ningxia coal industry and chemistry. A genuine friend of China, Zhu Funing, said, this land in Ningxia was dug, we must find coal.
Zhang Kehong states in the Ningxia coal production in 2010 reach 66 also ton obtained from 13 coal production bases. However, until now China still continue to import coal from Indonesia brick. Of course, the reason is the population of China is very much so automatic coal demand too big.
In Ningdong which is 40 km from Yinchuan and 30 km from the Yellow River, many energy industries be established by wind power or coal power.
Nindong also a supplier of electricity to all parts of China. Base Ningdong into energy and chemical industry base fee that is important in China. From a place of exploration can be produced 18 million tons of coal.
