Xinjiang firms make strong push at Consumer Products Expo

-Experts believe local companies won’t yield to Western suppression, ‘eager to compete globally’
HAIKOU: Constant smears, sanctions and suppression from the West against Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, which target the region’s pillar industries and aim to strangle local economic development, have not and will not dent local firms’ push and confidence in their products or disrupt their pace going global, the Global Times learned during the ongoing China International Consumer Products Expo (CICPE), which runs from Friday to Monday in Haikou, South China’s Hainan Province.
Over 600 cotton flowers were packed in an exquisite way and dispatched to visitors passing by the booths of Xinjiang firms as a souvenir. Visitors surrounded staff, stretching out their hands trying to get one. Some visitors who got the cotton flower quickly held it up and took selfies with the Xinjiang booth as a backdrop. Meanwhile, staff of ethnic minority danced to the music.
The white and high-quality Xinjiang cotton has been recognized by more consumers following recent Western attacks on the product, and it has become a highlight for the region during the expo. Five clothing and textile firms from Xinjiang participated in the trade fair, demonstrating the entire industry chain from raw materials to finished garments.
Yi Jing, deputy general manager of Siwei Textile from Awati County, Aksu Prefecture of Xinjiang, told the Global Times during the expo that she has read recent media reports regarding the West’s attacks on Xinjiang cotton, but the US sanctions and boycotts from some foreign companies did not affect her business. The company is a composite technology-based textile firm integrating cotton purchasing, processing, spinning and weaving.
“We currently have 350,000 spindles and 1,050 air-jet looms, with an annual output of 150 million meters of fabric, which is still in short supply. The production has been scheduled to the end of June this year,” Yi said, noting the CICPE has provided a good opportunity to introduce high-quality products made in Xinjiang to business people from home and abroad.
Xinjiang long-staple cotton, of the world’s top quality, is grown in the county where Yi’s firm is based. This type of cotton produced in the region accounts for about 93 percent of China’s total output. The long-staple cotton fiber is long and can be spun into high-count yarn. After a garment is made, it has a fine hand feel, good air permeability and a high level of comfort.
