MEXICO CITY, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- A picture exhibition titled "Tibet
of China" was inaugurated in the Mexican Chamber of Deputies on
Tuesday, where 195 images documenting Tibetan history, cultural and
religious protection, and socio-economic development are exhibited.

The exhibition, inaugurated by President of the Chamber of Deputies'
Directive Board Cesar Duarte Jaquez, will remain open to the public
until Oct. 24.

The exhibition is divided into eight parts: the history, the slavery,
the peaceful liberation and democratic reform, the foundation of the
autonomous region, the protection and respect for human rights,
culture and religion, the accelerated socio-economic development and
the happy life of the Tibetan people.

Chinese Ambassador to Mexico Yin Hengmin introduced the history of
Tibet at the inauguration ceremony and hailed the socio-economic
achievements of the region, mainly during recent years.

Yin also thanked the hospitality of the Mexican Congress and
legislature for permitting the exhibition of Tibetan culture such as
music, dance, philosophy, religion, sports, architecture and plastic arts.

An attendee said the exhibition is very interesting, "because many
times we have other images that do not correspond to the reality and
with these pictures we can see how Tibetans live."

"I have visited some big cities of China like Shanghai and now I have
the opportunity to know Tibet through this exhibition," said Felix
Ordorica, a researcher of Chinese culture.

The exhibition was initiated by the Chinese Embassy in Mexico, the
China-Mexico Friendship Group of the Chamber of Deputies, the
Cultural Commission of the Chamber of Deputies and Xinhua News Agency.
