Closing a company in Xinjiang Horgos has been a popular topic as the government launched even stricter rules and regulations on business set up in this region, especially those in the film and television industry. The focus of investment promotion has now shifted from virtual to practical. Many registered companies have not yet done a single business in Horgos because of the slow pace of business. Therefore, closing up the company may be a more cost-effective option than the cost of continuing to operate in Horgos.

According to China Central Television, more than 100 film and television companies have announced the closure of their businesses in Horgos since June this year.
