URUMQI — A group of 22 journalists from 14 countries concluded a trip to Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region on Wednesday, after gaining firsthand knowledge about the region's development and diverse culture.

The nine-day trip, which started on Sept 12, took the journalists from 17 overseas media organizations to various places in Xinjiang, including the regional capital Urumqi, the city of Turpan and Kashgar prefecture.

During the trip, they witnessed Xinjiang's social stability, economic development and diverse culture, as well as the happy lives of residents.

At a shopping center in the port city of Horgos on the China-Kazakhstan border, Maxim Cherevik, an editor at the Information Telegraph Agency of Russia, quickly spotted goods from Russia.

"The Chinese government has invested heavily in port construction, created many job opportunities and driven up regional growth," Cherevik said. "From here, I can see great potential for Belt and Road construction."
