East Turkistan free trade zone plan raises doubts

China's plan to make East Turkistan a "free trade zone" has raised doubts, and it is claimed that these trade centers are in fact the second version of concentration camps in East Turkistan.
As Taiwan News International reported on November 15, the Chinese Foreign Ministry recently released the so-called “Master Plan for the Xinjiang Pilot Free Trade Area.” Through this plan, East Turkistan will allegedly become a model for promoting high-quality development in the central and western regions and will promote the so-called "One Belt, One Road" initiative for basic regional construction.
Experts believe that the so-called "Xinjiang Pilot Free Trade Zone" is another version of the concentration camps in East Turkistan, where China is not only suppressing the Uyghur labor force on a larger scale but also trying to solve ethnic problems by forcing Uyghurs to work and marry foreigners. Chinese.
In fact, China tried to establish a free trade zone in East Turkistan as early as 2015, this time becoming the first free trade zone in the northwest after the Chinese Advisory Council announced the general plan. The entire free trade zone is divided into three parts: Urumqi, Gorgas and Kashgar, and the area of ​​the trade zone is 180 square kilometers.
According to experts, the economic and trade goals of China's plan are actually political plans, and the so-called "Xinjiang Free Trade Zone" may become another version of Chinese concentration camps. Shi Jianyu, a nominated researcher at Taiwan's National Defense and Security Research Institute who has studied Central Asia for a long time, said that the size of the so-called "Xinjiang Free Trade Zone" is abnormal and that China wants to turn the entire "free trade zone" into a large prison by building another version of concentration camps.
