The third session of the 12th People's Congress of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region was held from Jan 20 to 24. Representatives from Karamay, an oil city in northern Xinjiang presented the 2015 work plan during the session.

Chen Xinfa, the secretary of the Karamay Municipal Committee of the CPC (the Communist Party of China) summed up at the closing ceremony that the strategies implemented in Karamay in recent years are fully in line with Xinjiang's development strategies as a whole. The city will continue to implement the strategies in order to make substantial contribution to the region's development, he pointed out.

Zhang Hongyan, the acting mayor of Karamay said that Karamay was facing a new historic opportunity to rapidly rise as it is one of the most important energy cities in West China and also a major city along the new Silk Road Economic Belt. The city will further broaden its aims, speeding up the transformation pace from a resource-based city to a livable and sustainable city, she underlined.

According to Zhang, another vital goal is to maintain social peace and stability. She said that Karamay government would enhance education and publicity on national unity as well as strengthen law enforcement against criminal behaviors.
