Diverse geographical features, rich ethnic cultures and unique local cuisines have made Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region one of the most popular destinations in China in recent years.

To offer a panoramic view of Xinjiang to people in Belgium, the 2022 Xinjiang Cultural and Tourism Week launched in Brussels on Thursday. Titled "Xinjiang is A Good Place", the cultural and tourism week centers around five sections, covering Xinjiang's ice and snow, dance and music, as well as food and culture.

The week-long event will feature short videos, documentaries, a photo exhibition of Xinjiang's natural sceneries in Brussels, and screenings of films and television shows.

At the event's opening, Cao Zhongming, Chinese ambassador to Belgium, said he hopes that Belgian people can approach, understand and feel Xinjiang through this event, including its beautiful scenery and profound historical and cultural heritage, which will help promote understanding between people in both countries.

The Xinjiang Cultural and Tourism Week is co-hosted by the Chinese embassy in Belgium, the cultural and tourism bureau of Xinjiang and the Network of International Culturalink Entities.
