Upcoming WorldSkills Competition promoted in Xinjiang
The 46th WorldSkills Competition was promoted at a three-day national vocational skill competition with a theme of rural vitalization in Urumqi, in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, which concluded on Tuesday.
The event saw 640 contestants from all over China showcase their excellence in 11 different skills categories, such as repairing agricultural machines, hairdressing, cooking, running e-commerce businesses, electrical engineering and other aspects that are related to the country's rural vitalization.
During the competition, there was also an area for exchange between different regions.
