According to the monitoring, during the National Day holiday, all kinds of commodities are available on the festival market across Xinjiang, and the prices of livelihood commodities and epidemic prevention products are stable, with no significant fluctuation in the market. Prices of main agricultural and sideline products remain stable on the whole, while those of grain, oil, meat, eggs, milk and fish are basically stable. Prices of main vegetables fall slightly while those of fine vegetables rise slightly.

In order to stabilize the price of meat effectively, the Commerce Department of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region instructs contracted enterprises to release 200 tons of central reserve meat in Bayingolin Mongolian Autonomous Prefecture and 392 tons of temporary reserve meat in Karamay. By releasing reserve meat, the supply of meat is effectively guaranteed. It has also met the consumption demand of people of all ethnic groups for meat commodities by regulating the price of meat in the market.

Local governments organize consumption promotion activities with shopping, food, tourism and culture as the themes to boost consumption and effectively release the consumption potential. Many shopping malls, stores and supermarkets launch activities such as extending opening times and offering discounts. Night economy demonstration blocks and night markets across the region also extend opening times to enrich people's night life.
