Southern Xinjiang reports soaring agricultural imports, exports

January 03, 2020


Abstract : Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has seen robust growth of imports and exports of agricultural products in its southern parts, local customs authorities said Thursday.

URUMQI, Jan. 2 (Xinhua) -- Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has seen robust growth of imports and exports of agricultural products in its southern parts, local customs authorities said Thursday.

From January to November 2019, the import and export volume of agricultural products of southern Xinjiang grew to 120,000 tonnes and the trade volume reached 2.04 billion yuan (293 million U.S. dollars), up 1.1 times and 1.7 times year on year, respectively, according to Kashgar Customs.

Kashgar Customs said these products were mainly apples, walnuts, oranges and frozen ducks, and the main trading countries include Kyrgyzstan and Pakistan.

Tang Mei, from an international freight agent in Kashgar, said that due to the cold weather, the demand for fresh fruits from Central Asian countries has greatly increased.

"With the reduction in customs clearance costs and the increased efficiency of the customs clearance process, the damage to the fruits caused by excess refrigeration has dropped significantly," Tang added.
