Yu reiterated the importance of adherence to the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), which he said was the solid core to unite and lead people from all ethnic groups, and firmly sticking to socialism with Chinese characteristics.

Under the leadership of the CPC, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region was established on May 1, 1947.

The first session of the National People's Congress, the country's top legislature, included the system of regional autonomy for ethnic minorities in the constitution in 1954.

Covering an area of 1.18 million square kilometers, Inner Mongolia accounts for about 12 percent of the country's land area. The Mongolian population is 4.6 million, nearly one-fifth of the region's total.
