Launched by the Chinese State Council Information Office and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China, journalists from 8 media from India, Russia, Japan and South Africa etc. visited the Tibet Autonomous Region from March 29 to March 31. Six journalists, the main body of the cover delegation, were from the 5 mainstream media of their country.

The journalists visited different places such as the Lhasa Railway Station and the Potala Palace and interviewed people from all circles including former serfs, local officials, Buddhism believers, Tibetologists and enterprisers.

K·V·Prasad, senior editor of Press Trust of India, said that he knew little about Tibet before but this time he was impressed by Tibet's economic growth, Tibetan people's smile and the modern rural life with TV and tap water.

Bailey, head of the China branch of South African Broadcasting Corporation, told the reporter from China News Agency (CNS) that he was "educated and inspired" when visiting Lhasa. He said the reason for him to put many questions to issues about the 14th Dalai Lama was that the mainstream of South Africa payed attention to that and the government of South Africa just rejected visa for Dalai Lama who intended to participate in the Peace Conference and the Soccer World Cup. "My biggest harvest is that I not only have known about the official stance of Tibet but also have gained opportunities to communicate with people from all circles in Tibet," he said.

A journalist from Japan who was unwilling to reveal his name expressed that the scheduling of this interview was very nice thanks to experience of the Beijing Olympics and this activity showed that Chinese people became more open-minded. He said that he saw a normal and stable society during his 3-day visit in Lhasa and "intense atmosphere doesn't appear."
