The CPC Committee and the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region’s government will relocate three medical research institutions: the Xinjiang Institute of Material Medic, the Xinjiang Institute of Uygur Medicine Research and the Xinjiang Institute of Traditional Chinese and Ethnic Group Medicine, as well as construct the Innovative Medicine Research and Development Platform. This is according to an office meeting led by the vice-chairman of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region on April 19.

To ensure the project goes as planned, Hanibati Shabukai and Erken Tuniyaz – the Standing Committee Member of the region’s CPC Committee and the region’s vice-chairman, respectively – visited the biological medicine incubator in Urumqi Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone. The two investigated the new location for the three medical research institutions and then held a special meeting to discuss the project.

Erken Tuniyaz chaired the meeting, during which the three medical research institutions explained their development strategies, problems and expectations. Pang Aimin, deputy director of the region’s Administration Bureau of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ethnic Group Medicine, explained the project’s significance and updated those in attendance on its progress.

Hanibati Shabukai said that the three medical research institutions have provided invaluable healthcare services and have made huge contributions to the development of the pharmaceutical and healthcare fields in Xinjiang for many years. The institutions are especially valuable for their combination of traditional Chinese medicine with innovative drug research.

But it’s their “software and hardware” issues, as Hanibati Shabukai explained, that has stalled their existing offices’ development. The institutions have also dealt with aging facilities and a shortage of talent, and as such, this construction will revitalize their standing.

Erken Tuniyaz pointed out that these medical research institutions will enjoy brand-new development opportunities, especially given that Urumqi is building “Five Centers” along the Silk Road Economic Belt, as according to the recent Second Xinjiang Work Seminar of the State Council and the CCCPC. The project will improve the region’s capacity for innovation.
