The Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region has only recently become one of the most important energy producers in China. The region's GDP almost doubled from 2004 to 2009, and grew 12% to RMB753.03 billion in 2012. Xinjiang also claims a thriving agriculture sector, particularly famed for its fruits and produce including grapes, melons, and walnuts.

While the discovery of natural resources has certainly been a boost for the province, these resources remain scattered about an uninhabited and undeveloped landscape. Development in areas of production and transportation will be necessary to harness the region's economic growth.
