Xinjiang International Folk Dance Festival

The Xinjiang International Folk Dance Festival kicked off in Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region on Monday.

Officials say the festival is a platform to showcase Chinese culture, and to promote exchanges between countries along the Silk Road Economic Belt, an initiative China proposed in 2013 to revive ancient trade routes between Asia and Europe.

78 shows are expected to be staged during the festival, which lasts 17 days.
