The Statistics on International Development (SID) National Statistics, published on GOV.UK, provides an overview of all UK spend on Official Development Assistance (ODA). Detailed UK ODA figures for 2020 will be published in autumn 2021, via SID: Final UK Aid Spend 2020. SID is collected and reported in line with the OECD reporting directives, and therefore is captured using the OECD categories. We do not collect UK ODA information at a provincial level for these official statistics, but I can confirm that we do not have any bilateral ODA-funded programmes in Xinjiang.
