The authorities of far western Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region have unveiled a package of measures to improve people's livelihood at a regional work conference.

The package came after the Chinese central authorities earlier this month outlined a strategic plan for the region to ensure leapfrog development and lasting stability.

The package concerned all aspects of people's lives in Xinjiang: housing, living facilities, bilingual education, employment, talents cultivation, social security and income, said Zhang Chunxian, the newly-appointed secretary of the Xinjiang regional committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), at the meeting which kicked off Wednesday.

Xinjiang must stick to a development path with Chinese characteristics that suits the region's situation to achieve leapfrog development and lasting stability, Zhang said.

At a central work conference on Xinjiang's development concluding May 19, President Hu Jintao vowed to invest more to improve the region's public services.

He vowed to implement major projects to provide local people with a "modern and civilized" living environment.

At the meeting, Premier Wen Jiabao stressed that the first and foremost goal of the support policies for Xinjiang is "ensuring and improving the well-being of the people in Xinjiang."
