Tibet's Burang border market attracts more foreign businessmen

Burang County, southwestern Ngari Prefecture, northern Tibet, lies in an area bordered by Nepal and India. It is considered a major trading port of entry connecting China to South Asia. Border trade there has a history of more than 500 years.

It was approved by the State Council as the nation's secondary port of entry in 1992. In 2004, a border market with a floor space of 5,000 sq m was built with state investment. Now, about 70 commercial businesses from India and Nepal live permanently in Burang.

In the first half of 2009, the imports and exports via the Burang border market were 2.5 million yuan (0.3 million U.S. dollars) and 6.4 million yuan (0.77 million U.S. dollars,) respectively.
