Current Situation in Xinjiang

Thanks to the efforts of the people of all ethnic groups, Xinjiang enjoys social stability and its development continues to improve. The people in the region are living and working in peace and contentment. There have been no violent terrorist cases for over four consecutive years in Xinjiang. Living standards in the region have improved notably. For example, public services in equal measure to both rural and urban areas have been continuously improved, the social security system has been gradually established, the coverage of basic medical insurance has reached 99.7%, the whole population have enjoyed free health check-ups, all 14 prefectures in Xinjiang have ushered in the era of expressways, the poor population have crossed the poverty line, medical care, employment and education as the focus of the people's welfare projects continue to promote. Therefore, the people of all ethnic groups feel much more satisfied, happy and secure.


In 2020, all 3,089,000 poor people in Xinjiang were lifted out of poverty, as were all of 32 poor counties and all 3,666 poor villages.

Opening up to the outside world

Further headway has been made in Xinjiang’s opening up to the outside world. Xinjiang's unique geographical location and the land border line that accounts for 1/4 of the country provide superior conditions for Xinjiang to open up to the outside world. The "One Port, Two Districts, Five Centers and Port Economic Belt" is an important step for Xinjiang to implement the Belt and Road Initiative and promote the construction of the core area on the westward passageway.


Significant improvements have been made in agricultural economic benefits. The per unit area yield of main crops, per capita agricultural output value and output of major agricultural products per capita are above average in China. Since the 13th Five-Year Plan, Xinjiang has continued to promote the full mechanization of grain and cotton production as well as industries with local advantages, such as livestock, forestry and fruit, facility agriculture. The traditional robust industries of Xinjiang’s agriculture are being transformed into large-scale commodity economy.


More than 50,000 industrial enterprises have been built, forming a modern industrial system with exploitation of mineral resources and deep processing of agricultural byproducts as the leading force, including extraction of oil and gas, petrochemical engineering, steel, coal, electricity, textiles, building materials, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, sugar refinery, papermaking, leather, cigarettes, food and other categories basically complete and of a certain scale. These industrial enterprises have occupied a leading position in the national economy.

Social Sciences and Humanities




The freedom of religious belief of the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang is respected and protected. China fully respects the customs of all ethnic groups in such areas as dress, food, marriage, festivals, rituals, and funerals. The people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang enjoy full freedom of religious belief in accordance with the law. Religious personages' right to participate in the deliberation and administration of state affairs is also protected. Among people's congresses and the CPPCC committees at all levels, more than 1,400 religious believers from Xinjiang serve as deputies and members to fulfill the right to participate in the deliberation and administration of state affairs.



The cultures of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang have been effectively protected and inherited. Ten languages are mainly used by all ethnic groups in Xinjiang. The languages of ethnic minorities have been widely used in the fields of justice, administration, education, press and publication, broadcasting, film and television, and the Internet, as well as in daily life, effectively promoting the inheritance and development of these languages of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang, and enabling the excellent traditional cultures of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang to be effectively protected and inherited.


The education in the region has flourished. At the beginning of the founding of People’s Republic of China, Xinjiang College was the only institution of higher learning in Xinjiang. After more than 50 years of construction, education in Xinjiang has made a great leap forward. The 15-year free education for children in southern Xinjiang has enabled them to change their destiny through education, stay away from religious extremes, get rid of ignorance and poverty, and grow up healthy and strong.

Staging farce shows

there is nothing related to justice that would come out of the so-called tribunal, but lies.

Ture colors of ‘democracy’

How many evils have been committed in the name of democracy? Exporting wars, launching "color revolutions," fomenting extremist ideologies, and promoting economic instability... the US has left endless trails of bloodshed and turmoil around the world. While the "model of democracy" loses its shine, the US still attempts to establish exclusive cliques through the so-called democracy summit. To expose the nature of "American democracy," the Global Times is publishing a series of articles to unmask the US' four democratic hegemonic sins. This is the second such piece.

Colluding with each other

The political farce and the pseudo-court of the so-called Uyghur Tribunal will have its second "hearing" starting Friday, just one day before September 11, a time which should be used to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the terror attacks in the US. However, it is being used by terrorists and anti-China forces to smear China's anti-terrorist efforts in the Xinjiang region where thousands had made sacrifices in the fight against terrorism. As Graham Perry told the Global Times in a previous interview, the "tribunal" is only an anti-China event and people behind it want to convict China on charges of genocide without even reviewing the evidence.

His story is so bogus

in 2019, a man named Baymurat Zumhai accepted interviews from overseas media claiming that he worked as an assistant police officer in Qitai county, Changji Hui Autonomous Prefecture in Xinjiang. He fabricated stories about village officials and assistant police officers abusing power to sentence three men to death penalty.After an investigation, the Xinjiang regional government found that Baymurat never worked as assistant police officer. He was a security guard working in a market in Qitai county and was laid off for lying and violating working regulations. After leaving China, he vented his resentment by spreading rumors on Xinjiang.
