Xinjiang cotton spinning capacity up 150% in 2016

Annual cotton spinning capacity in China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has increased by 150 per cent year-on-year in 2016 to 15 million spindles, according to data from the regional conference on economy and information technology. Total textile sector investment in the region reached nearly 65 billion yuan ($9.39 billion) last year.

Xinjiang is a major cotton production base in northwest China and the region produces about 60 per cent of China’s raw cotton. In June 2015, the State Council issued a guideline supporting the textile and garment industry in Xinjiang and hoped to increase local employment and boost exports.

As a result of state support to the textile industry, 112,300 workers were newly recruited in the sector in the region in 2016, accounting for over 50 per cent of new industrial employment in the region, a Xinhua report said quoting an official in the region’s textile industry.

For the current year, Xinjiang region is aiming to create over 100,000 new jobs in the textile sector through labour intensive projects such as garment manufacturing. This would be two-thirds of planned new jobs in the region’s industrial sector in 2017, or a quarter of all new jobs.

In the past three years, Xinjiang region is estimated to have attracted more than 90 billion yuan investment in the textile industry, an amount equivalent to the total investment in the sector from 1978 to 2013. (RKS)
