On 21 March 2016, the government of the Chinese province Xinjiang announced a new subsidy fund for the local textile industry. The state aid will be mainly directed at rent-free factories and transportation subsidies.
The deputy secretary-general of the province was cited saying that the fund should increase exports of textiles to Central Asia, Western Asia, Europe and Russia.
