After completion, the revenue of the Park will be rent from all 71 naan workshops and 27 stores in the Park, among them, 40% will be used for the operation and maintenance of the Park, 30% for the income of 11 villages nearby, and the rest 30% for aiding the impoverished households in Kumkusar Township.

The Naan Industrial Park will provide jobs directly for more than 500 local people. In addition, the Park will also promote the development of a series of local industries and form an industrial chain, providing indirectly 500 jobs of catering, e-commerce, logistics, cleaning, security and service. Altogether, it will create stable employment for more than 1,000 villagers nearby.

It is reported that the current daily output of naan in Xinjiang is 550 tons (about 2.75 million naans), of which the online sales are increasing year by year. Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Heilongjiang and Hainan are major markets outside Xinjiang.
