Recent from CGTN:
CGTN published this video item, entitled “The Point: How is cotton produced in Xinjiang?” – below is their description.
It’s #cotton plowing season in #Xinjiang. Liu Xin interviews Chen Quanjia, Duputy Director of Agricultural Institute at Xinjiang Agricultural University. Sowing machines and cotton production technologies have facilitated the growth of Xinjiang cotton, which supplies 87% of cotton for the whole country. But some Western countries are smearing Xinjiang with “forced-labor” allegations, followed by boycotting and discrediting Xinjiang cotton. Liu Xin went to Xinjiang to tell the truth they refused to know. How is Xinjiang cotton produced? How has the cotton industry helped eliminate poverty in the region? #China

Xinjiang, an autonomous territory in northwest China, is a vast region of deserts and mountains. It’s home to many ethnic minority groups, including the Turkic Uyghur people. The ancient Silk Road trade route linking China and the Middle East passed through Xinjiang, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of its oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar.
