XinhuaUpdated: September 26, 2021


Xinjiang's demographic development, reflecting the situation across the nation, bears witness to the region's social progress. It marks the success of a unified multiethnic country in ensuring the healthy population growth of its ethnic minorities.

Over the past 70 years, Xinjiang has seen rapid and steady population growth, improving population quality, higher life expectancy, and faster urbanization and modernization. All the ethnic groups enjoy unity, harmony, common progress, prosperity and happy lives under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC). 

Xinjiang's evolving demographics are a natural result of local economic and social development, and of industrialization and modernization. This success is unparalleled in history, and is apparent to any person who respects facts. Anti-China forces have fabricated stories of "genocide" in Xinjiang to deceive the international community, mislead international public opinion, and impede China's development and progress. These malicious efforts will not succeed. Truth will prevail over falsehoods.

The Chinese government will continue to safeguard China's sovereignty, security, and development interests, and contribute to the common unity, development and prosperity of all ethnic groups. The CPC's strategy for governance in Xinjiang in the new era will not change: 

• governing Xinjiang in accordance with the law, 

• maintaining stability through ethnic unity,

• strengthening cultural identity and bonds,

• bringing greater prosperity to the region and its people,

• developing Xinjiang from a long-term perspective. 

It will continue to promote unity, harmony and cultural progress and strive for a prosperous and eco-friendly Xinjiang under socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, where people live and work in peace and contentment. Xinjiang's march towards modernization will not be stopped by any force, and its future is bright and secure.
