URUMQI: Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region government plans to increase its spending on public security by almost 90 percent this year compared to last year to further maintain social stability following last year's July 5 riot in the regional capital of Urumqi, according to the government's budget proposal released yesterday.

The regional government's spending on public security will reach 2.89 billion yuan ($423 million) this year, up 87.9 percent over last year's 1.54 billion yuan, according to the budget proposal handed over to deputies of the Xinjiang People's Congress during a five-day annual conference that kicked off yesterday in Urumqi.
