Xinjiang to become major textile industry hub by 2020

The Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, located in the northwestern part of China, has prepared a plan to develop the textile and garment industry in the region and create employment opportunities for millions of people by 2020.
 
The plan aims at production of textiles and garments worth 163.5 billion by 2020, of which the cotton spinning industry is expected to contribute 50 billion yuan, cotton fabric industry 6 billion yuan, knitting industry 8 billion yuan, wool industry 1.2 billion yuan, and carpet industry 5 billion yuan.
 
The clothing sector would account for the remaining portion of the industrial output value.
 
Southern Xinjiang region will be the focus of development and the key areas would be Aksu, Kashi, and Hotan Prefectures, where industrial development is lagging behind and the availability of abundant labour resources would be an advantage for the development of labour-intensive textile and garment industry.
 
The development of textile and clothing industry would not only drive local economy but also solve the problem of unemployment in the region.
 
It is expected that by 2020, the whole textile and apparel industrial chain employment capacity in Xinjiang would reach 100 million, of which about 14 million people would be employed in the cotton spinning sector, 1.14 million people in the cotton fabric sector, 1.8 million people in the knitting sector, and another 10 million people in logistics, marketing, trading and other activities.
 
The plan aims to double the employment in the textile and garment sector to 40 million people by 2017, and again more than double during the next three years to reach 100 million people by 2020.
 
At present, most of China’s textile and garment industry is located in coastal areas and currently some industries are moving to central and western parts of the country, and also to Southeast Asian countries.
 
Recently, a new international railway transport has opened in Xinjiang, which would enable the region to export its textiles and apparel westwards to the Central and West Asian regions, as well as to Russia and the EU. 
 
The railway line substantially reduces the transport time between Xinjiang and Central Asia, which is a favorable factor in attracting investments from domestic textile and garment export enterprises.
