The Tibet autonomous region is preserving traditional culture while seeking high-quality development, overseas visitors have found.

As part of the 2023 Forum on the Development of Xizang, China (Xizang is the name of Tibet in Chinese), which is scheduled to be held this week in Beijing, a group of diplomats and other international visitors paid a visit to the region's Nyingchi city and other places last week.

They had an opportunity to observe natural landscapes, cultural practices and the development outlook of the region.

An important event in the region, with the participation of diplomats and experts internationally, the forum facilitates cultural and economic exchanges between the region and the rest of the world.

Fiji's Ambassador to China Manasa R. Tagicakibau, one of the overseas guests on the field trip, spoke highly of China's efforts to preserve traditional Tibetan culture while boosting economic development in the region.

Tagicakibau said he had never been to the region before. He had only read about Tibet's religious practices and high altitude.

"What I was most astonished about in Tibet was the preservation of culture here, during this process of economic development, the locals continue to preserve their cultures," Tagicakibau said.
