Wuqi County is a county of Yan'an, Shaanxi Province, China.


An account of Wuqi (Wu Ch'i, in Wade-Giles Romanization) in 1936 can be found in Edgar Snow's "Red Star over China". At the time, it was the main industrial center of the communist-controlled Shaanxi/Gansu/Ningxia borderlands area, This is where the Red Army's arsenal. cloth, uniform, shoe and stockings factories were at the time. As Edgar Snow noted, the arsenal's products were mostly used to arm the Red guerilla fighters, while the regular Red Army units mostly used weapons captured from the enemy (Kuomintang and warlord) troops.[1]
