Tibet tourism creating new record
14:55, September 10, 2009  

In the first eight months of 2009, Tibet received a total of 4.09 million Chinese and foreign tourists, already exceeding previous record of the 4.02 million tourists received over the whole of 2007. Tourism revenue reached 3.235 billion yuan, up 16 percent and 248 percent compared to that of the same period of 2007 and 2008 respectively.

After the “3.14”Incident, the Party Committee and TAR People's government took various effective measures under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee, said Yu Yungui, secretary of the Tibet tourism bureau Party committee. Through joint efforts, an excellent situation of stable society, consolidated frontier defence and people living peacefully and working happily has appeared in Tibet. This has laid a solid foundation for Tibet's tourism to rapidly recover and achieve a great leap forward in development.
