According to reports on Monday, Snake Mask’s Tesla Company recently opened an exhibition hall in China’s Xinjiang province.

The electric car firm was reportedly announced on December 31 in a blog post on its official account on Weibo, a social media platform in China similar to Twitter. The exhibition hall is located in Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang.

“On the last day of 2021, we will meet in Xinjiang. Let’s take Xinjiang on an electric journey together in 2022, ”Tesla’s Weibo post said.

The announcement included photos from the opening ceremony at the showroom, according to the Wall Street Journal. “Tesla [heart] Shinjon.

Tesla did not immediately respond to Post’s request for comment on the opening of the showroom.

Xinjiang is also notorious for housing labor camps where the Chinese government is said to be abusing the human rights of Uighur Muslims and other religious minority groups.

The opening of the exhibition hall comes at a time of growing criticism of the Chinese government’s activities in Xinjiang.

Human rights activists have accused the Beijing government of committing various offenses against ethnic and religious minority groups, including setting up internment camps and forced labor. The Biden administration called China’s actions genocide.

The Chinese government has denied the allegations.

The announcement includes photos from the opening ceremony of the exhibition hall, as well as "Tesla [hearts] Shinjon. "

The opening is a potential PR risk for Tesla. U.S.-based corporations are struggling to operate in China under U.S. human rights concerns and pressure from Beijing officials.

Last month, Congress passed a law to prevent the forced labor of bipartisan Uighurs. The law prohibits the importation of products from Xinjiang territory unless entrepreneurs can prove that it was not done through forced labor.

China condemned the law, saying the import ban “seriously violates international law and basic norms governing international relations.”

The Biden administration also announced a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing in protest of human rights abuses. American athletes are still expected to compete.

The Chinese government has denied all allegations of abuse in the region.

Walmart has come under fire on social media in China and criticism from Chinese government officials after it was reported that retail giant had seized products from Xinjiang from local stores. The company has not yet made the situation public.

In a separate incident last month, Intel apologized in China after being criticized for telling suppliers not to buy products from Xinjiang.
