The Silk Road Economic Zone is quickly developing and Urumqi Toutunhe district’s Paerlake Carpet Factory wants to play a key role in generating further growth.

The factory plans to open Xinjiang’s first carpet industry demonstration park in response to increased product demand. In 2014, factory orders increased 30 percentage points from the previous year. The overseas market also has expanded.

The factory head said the demonstration park would bring around 2,000 jobs to the region. The park will involve a Xinjiang carpet trading center, handmade carpet R & D centers, and a hand woven carpet production line.
