The ethnic harmony, economic progress, and respect to culture of ethnic minority groups in northwestern China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region have impressed representatives from foreign political parties after they had an on-site visit to learn about the region.

Around 200 representatives of 50 political parties from nearly 30 countries attended a seminar themed with China's ethnic policy in Urumqi, the capital city of Xinjiang on February 27. Before the meeting, they observed the region’s economic and social development through a series of tours and visits.

Dogu Perincek, Chairman of Patriotic Party of Turkey, said that this is his fourth visit to Xinjiang, and he could see changes every time.

When visiting Urumqi-based firm Rival Tech, the first deputy speaker of the Egyptian parliament Elsayed Mahmoud Elsherif invited the company to set up factory in his country, saying that the raw materials the company needed to produce functional high-polymer thin films were also available in Egypt.

Elsherif wrote down his phone number on a business card and extended it to company’s chief Liu Shengrong, repeatedly asking the latter to contact him for cooperation.

Statistics indicated that the per capita disposable income of Xinjiang’s urban and rural residents respectively grew by 6.5 and 8.5 percent in 2018.
