It will also see participation of decision-making officials from the countries along the belt and road initiative as well as business leaders and representatives of national institutions from mainland China, Asean and other countries and regions.

More than 300 other participants, including investors, project leaders as well as textile and garment enterprise owners from both Xinjiang and outside would also attend the event.
