Foreign journalists visit Lhasa

A 17-member delegation of foreign journalists completed a four-day journey to Lhasa, capital of Tibet Autonomous Region in southwest China.

The tour was organized by the Information Department of Foreign Ministry.

On the occasion, journalists from 16 foreign media organizations asked questions about the March 14 Lhasa riot, Tibet's tourism and social and economic development. The group of journalists worked in Lhasa from June 18 to 21, photo from Xinhua.

During their stay in Lhasa, they visited Lamaseries, schools, and the Lhasa Railway Station and talked with Tibetan lamas, students, herdsmen and farmers as well as tourists.

They also attended a press conference hosted by Gumbo Tashi, a Standing Committee member and secretary-general of the autonomous region's committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

The foreign reporters were informed of the situation of religion, tourism and economic development and environmental protection in Tibet, by local government officials including Lhasa Mayor Doje Cezhug.

"We expect that foreign journalists see and feel a real Tibet by their own," Gumbo Tashi said.
