BEIJING, July 14 (Xinhua) -- All ethnic groups in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region enjoy equal rights to economic development and are moving steadily towards the goal of common prosperity, a white paper said on Wednesday.

The document, titled "Respecting and Protecting the Rights of All Ethnic Groups in Xinjiang," was released by the State Council Information Office.

All ethnic groups enjoy equal opportunities and economic rights, and are developing the region together and building better lives, according to the white paper. Enditem
