The China National Tourism Administration said that they will give some
support to Tibet in six areas to further spur its tourism development.

First, CNTA will organize experts from around the country to investigate
the current status of Tibet's tourism industry and give their
professional suggestions about its development. Second, CNTA will invest
RMB40 million taken from the national tourism development fund, of which
RMB10 million will be used for the renovation of toilets in Tibet's
major scenic spots. Third, they will help Tibet to enhance its
attraction for foreign investment.

Next, to enlarge the number of well-trained tour guides assigned to
Tibet, besides 80 guides of less-popular languages from Zhejiang
University and Sichuan University each year, Nankai University and
Beijing International Studies University will also train some tour
guides for Tibet to expand the number of supporting guides to 200.
Fifth, to continue providing senior management talents in the tourism
industry for Tibet, they will set up special training bases in Yangtze
River Delta and Pearl River Delta areas to strengthen Tibet's talent
troops. Finally, CNTA will not only increase the promotion of Tibet's
tourism market around the world but also actively organize international
tourism sellers to visit Tibet.

CNTA plans to push the tourism sector to be Tibet's leading industry
through these supporting measures.
