The auto exports through overland ports in Xinjiang are soaring in the first four months of this year, according to official data.

The customs statistics show that more than 3,200 vehicles with a total value of 127 million U.S. dollars were exported from Xinjiang from January to April. The number and total value grew by 93 percent and 76 percent year on year, respectively.

Korgas has become the biggest auto exporter in Xinjiang. In the first month of this year, about 2,300 vehicles with a value of 93 million U.S. dollars were exported through Korgas, growing 73 percent and 63 percent, respectively, which accounts for roughly 70 percent of Xinjiang's total auto exports volume.

According to Urumqi customs, the improved economy in neighboring countries like Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan gives major steam to their demand of Chinese automobiles. The advantage of Chinese automobiles in price and performance also contributes to the significant increase of exports via overland ports in Xinjiang.
