BEIJING, May 25 (Xinhuanet) -- The British Broadcasting Corporation
(BBC) has decided to broadcast a promotional commercial in December on
its World Channel free to help promote Lhasa's tourism, according to
Tibet Business Newspaper.

    At the West China Counties International Investment and Cooperation
Forum held in Hong Kong late April, the BBC World showed great interest
in Lhasa's tourism and promised to make a short film costing 100,000
yuan on the topic.

    "This will be the first time for Lhasa to publicize its tourism
worldwide. With this 30-second short film, we hope to enhance Lhasa's
international image, help the world know the city better and attract
more people," said Gao Fu, deputy director of the Lhasa's Tourism Bureau.

    Meanwhile, China Travel Service (Hong Kong) LTD. (CTS) has offered a
framework agreement to the Lhasa's Tourism Bureau, indicating its
intention to help Lhasa's tourism with greater efforts. The agreement
includes nine articles such as building new hotels and developing
tourist resources in Lhasa.

    "It is necessary to cooperate with such strong companies as CTS to
build Lhasa into an international popular destination," Gao added.

    The bureau is now revising the agreement, trying to make it more
beneficial to both sides, Gao said.
