Chinese specialists in Tibetan studies wrap up Vancouver tour

A delegation of Chinese specialists in Tibetan studies wrapped up a two-day visit to Vancouver on Friday after holding academic exchanges with local daily Vancouver Sun.

According to Zha Luo, head of the delegation and also associate professor with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the Chinese specialists briefed the senior editors and a columnist with Vancouver Sun on the achievements and progress Tibet has made in the fields of economy, social security, cultural preservation and education.

Douglas Todd, spirituality and philosophy columnist of the newspaper, told Xinhua that the meeting was very helpful for him to learn about all the efforts the Chinese government has put into Tibet, including the efforts to modernize the autonomous region and preserve the ancient culture of the Tibetans.

"It was interesting and important to hear about an incredible amount of work that the Chinese government has put in to try to make Tibet a more livable and civilized place," he said.

The Chinese specialists visited Thrangu Monastery, the first Tibetan Buddhist temple in Canada, in the coastal city of Richmond.

Zha Luo said that all the Canadians they have met showed their interest in Tibet's development and expressed their hope to go to Tibet for an academic research.

"We certainly expect them to come to China to see the true Tibet so as to correct all the misunderstanding and prejudice toward Tibet," he told Xinhua.

The Chinese delegation arrived here Thursday as the first leg of its North America tour. They will also visit Toronto, Ottawa, New York, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles.
