The city's embroidery industry is flourishing, which has benefited more than 5,600 part-time embroiderers in the city and helped lift them out of poverty. About 230 embroidery companies have been established thanks to a series of supportive policies provided by the local government.

"The city has not only launched 56 training classes of traditional Hami embroidery for more than 6,000 people, but sent local inheritors of traditional embroidery to study painting, designing and marketing in Beijing, Shanghai and other Chinese cities," said Shi Yunhai, deputy head of culture and tourism department of Xinjiang.
