Xinjiang upgrades ports to boost foreign trade

Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has greatly benefited from developing its ports to boost foreign trade in 2019, according to the region’s ongoing legislature meeting.

Among the region’s 18 ports, the port of Khorgos stood out with a total trade volume of 108.9 billion yuan (15.7 billion U.S. dollars) in the first 11 months of 2019, handling around 31.45 million tonnes of import and export goods.
