The Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region experienced a travel boom
上海419from January to June, and the growth is projected to co
ntinue through the rest of 2019, according to a recent report by the region’s government.
The report said that in the first half of 2019, the region received abou上海419
t 76 million visits, up 46 per-cent year-on-year. Revenue generated by tourism exc
上海419品茶微信eeded 115 billion yuan ($16 billion), registering an increase of about 48 percent over the same period last year.
Urumqi, Ili Kazak autonomous prefecture and Changji Hui autonomous pre
fecture were the three hottest destinations for travelers in the past half year. Yea
-on-year, Urumqi saw a 56 percent increase in travelers, Ili Kazak saw 81 per-cent, and Changji Hui 46 percent.上海419
Domestic travelers accounted for 98 percent of those visiting the region, w
hile the top three sources of overseas visitors were Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia.
上海419品茶微信According to the report, tourism will maintain high-speed growth of 40 percent in the next half year thanks to sta

Zhang Xiaoyu, general secretary of the Xinjiang Tourism Association, said that winter use
d to be the slack season for Xinjiang because of the rather low temperatures and heavy snow.
上海419品茶微信”Numerous scenic spots were shut down when winter came, but they grew
to be new attractions to travelers thanks to the popularity of winter tourism,” he said.
In February, 351 attractions were available to travelers, much上海419
more than the 69 that opened around that time last year, according to the report.

veloping country that signed the letter criticizing China, nor did many Western countries, includ
上海419品茶微信ing some European Union countries. This shows that the international community does not a
pprove of the usual suspects using human rights issues to interfere in China’s internal affairs.
China has taken a series of counterterrorism and deradicalization measures in Xi上海419
njiang, including setting up vocational education and training centers, which have helped reverse the s
上海419品茶微信ecurity situation in Xinjiang and effectively guaranteed the basic human rights of the people of all ethnic groups in t
he region. In the joint letter, the 50 countries urged Western countries and their officials who have not even visited X上海419
injiang to stop making groundless accusations against China based on unverified information. That these co
上海419品茶微信untries have issued a joint letter in support of China and opposed the unfounded attack on China shows they r
ecognize China’s contribution to the global fight against terrorism and extremism.上海419
Based on hearsay and the words of some anti-China elements, some
上海419Western countries, non-governmental organizations and media outlets have ma
de malicious accusations against China and smeared the measures taken in Xinjiang to counte上海419品茶微信
r terrorism and extremism, and fabricated false stories without regard to the facts.
上海419But the human rights situation in Xinjiang allows for no distortion. That Xinjiang has not seen a single violent ter
rorist incident in the past three years and the people of all ethnicities in Xinjiang have significantly increased th
eir sense of gain, happiness and security proves the ill-intent of these false accusations.上海419品茶微信
The Western model is not the only development model, nor the only
one that protects human rights. All countries have the right to choose their own po
litical system and development path, and they are firmly opposed to the human right
s being used as a tool and double standard to bring shame on other countries and interfere in their internal affairs.
The mindset of Chinese people, their sense of aesthetics and lifestyle are largely determined by their taste for j

Boris Johnson began the task of forming the United Kingdom’s next government on上海419品茶微信

replace Theresa May as Conservative Party leader and Britain’s prime minister.

Speaking outside 10 Downing Street, Johnson praised May for her “fortitude and patience” and for her “deep sense of publi

“The people who bet against Britain are going to lose their shirts,” he said while pr
aising British values and insisting that a favorable deal with the EU is still possible.上海419
