Some are aware of Xinjiang time, + # but have no need of it. All planes, trains, and schools function on + # what is called "Beijing time." When Han make an appointment in Chinese + # they implicitly use Beijing time. + # + # On the other hand, ethnic Uyghurs, who make up about half the + # population of Xinjiang, typically use "Xinjiang time" which is two + # hours behind Beijing time, or UTC +0600. The government of the Xinjiang + # Uyghur Autonomous Region, (XAUR, or just Xinjiang for short) as well as + # local governments such as the Urumqi city government use both times in + # publications, referring to what is popularly called Xinjiang time as + # "Urumqi time." When Uyghurs make an appointment in the Uyghur language + # they almost invariably use Xinjiang time. + # + # (Their ethnic Han compatriots would typically have no clue of its + # widespread use, however, because so extremely few of them are fluent in + # Uyghur, comparable to the number of Anglo-Americans fluent in Navajo.) + # + # (...As with the rest of China there was a brief interval ending in 1990 + # or 1991 when summer time was in use. The confusion was severe, with + # the province not having dual times but four times in use at the same + # time. Some areas remained on standard Xinjiang time or Beijing time and + # others moving their clocks ahead.) + # + # ...an example of an official website using of Urumqi time. + # + # The first few lines of the Google translation of + # <a href="http://www.fjysgl.gov.cn/show.aspx?id=2379&cid=39"> + # http://www.fjysgl.gov.cn/show.aspx?id=2379&cid=39 + # </a> + # (retrieved 2009-10-13) + # > Urumqi fire seven people are missing the alleged losses of at least + # > 500 million yuan + # > + # > (Reporter Dong Liu) the day before 20:20 or so (Urumqi Time 18:20), + # > Urumqi City Department of International Plaza Luther Qiantang River + # > burst fire.
