Tibet handled 401 million U.S. dollars worth of imports and exports in 2009, according to the Tibet Autonomous Regional Commerce Department.

Tibet's foreign trade began to plummet in the third quarter of last year due to the global financial crisis.

The autonomous region reported 150 million dollars worth of imports and exports in general trade, down 71.13 percent year on year.

Meanwhile, it scored 249 million dollars in its border trade, a 3.87 percent increase over the same period in 2008.

Moreover, the export of home-made products hit 25.6 million dollars, with more manufactured goods exported and beer and mineral water sold to other countries for the first time.
