STUDY IN Ningxia

Why Ningxia



Ningxia , officially the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region (NHAR), is an autonomous region of the People's Republic of China located in the northwest part of the country. Formerly a province, Ningxia was incorporated into Gansu in 1954 but was separated from Gansu in 1958 and was reconstituted as an autonomous region for the Hui people, one of the 56 officially recognized nationalities of China. Twenty percent of China's Hui population lives in Ningxia.

Geography

Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region is situated in the west part of the Yellow River Bend, which bordering on Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region, Shaanxi Province and Gansu Province. It has an area of 66,000 square kilometers, most of which is mountains and highlands. There are 30 nationalities: Hui, Han, Mongolian, Manchu, etc, with population of 6.1 million (2008), of which Hui people accounts for 33.88%. With Yinchuan City as its capital the Region has two prefectures, two cities and 16 counties under its jurisdiction.

Climate

As it is inland, the Region enjoys a temperate continental semi-moist and arid climate. The annual temperature averages 5°C to 10°C (41°F  to 59°F). The frost-free period in a year is 100 to 162 days. The annual rainfall varies from 190 to 700 mm.

History

Ningxia became an administrative region during the Qin and Han dynasties known as North Prefecture. During the period of the Song dynasty, it was split into two parts, one was controlled by the Song ruler, and one became part of a minor state Western Xia independent of Song sovereignty. In the Yuan Dynasty it was restored to the status of prefecture. In the Ming dynasty it was upgraded to the status of Wei directly controlled by the central government while in the Qing dynasty it was degraded by two grades administratively, assuming the status of Fu. In 1928 it was upgraded again to provincial level. 1958 it was restructured and named as Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region following the policy applying to regions where the minority nationalities inhabit.

Population and Nationalities

The population of Ningxia in 2017 is 6.8179 million. The ethnic composition of Ningxia includes the Han (Chinese), who constitute the majority of the population; Hui (Chinese Muslims), at more than one-third of the population, the largest minority group; and Manchu and small numbers of Tibetans and Mongols. Nearly all the people speak Mandarin Chinese, with some speaking Tibetan and Mongolian. The predominant religions are Islam and Buddhism; Islam has the most believers, primarily among the Hui.

Economy

Rural Ningxia was for long an officially designated poverty area, and is still located on the lower rungs of the developmental ladder.[17] It is the province with the third smallest GDP (Tibet being the last) in China, even though its neighbors, Inner Mongolia and Shaanxi, are among the strongest emerging provincial economies in the country. Its nominal GDP in 2011 was just 200.0 billion yuan (US$32.7 billion) and a per capita GDP of 21,470 yuan (US$3,143). It contributes 0.44% of the national economy.
Unlike several other underdeveloped provinces, labor costs in Ningxia are among the highest in China (ranking in the top third percentile), making it unattractive as a manufacturing center. Furthermore, Ningxia has yet to become a hub for consumption due to its low population.
