The Strategic Significance of Xinjiang for China in the 21st Century


  • Gang, L.
  • Felmingham, B.S.


The 21st century will be very important for China. In this century, China will strive for the achievement of modernisation, while improving the welfare of its huge population which will peak during this time. Xinjiang will supply more than one quarter of oil and gas production for China; it will be the main channel for energy imports and for China's entry into the Central Asian market. Xinjiang's minority problem will be a serious challenge to China's ethnic minority problem.
