People's Review - - COMMENTARY -

TOKYO, Sept. 14 (Xin­hua) -A Ti­betan cul­tural ex­change del­e­ga­tion dis­patched by China's State Coun­cil In­for­ma­tion Of­fice has in­formed Ja­panese law­mak­ers, press and re­li­gious groups about the lat­est de­vel­op­ment of China's Ti­bet Au­tonomous Re­gion. Dur­ing the visit that kicked off on Wed­nes­day, the del­e­ga­tion held sem­i­nars with Ja­panese law­mak­ers, re­li­gious groups, and re­porters from ma­jor Ja­panese me­dia and in­tro­duced the achieve­ments made by Ti­bet in re­cent years in eco­nomic and so­cial de­vel­op­ment, im­prove­ment of peo­ple's liv­ing stan­dards, en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion, and in­her­i­tance and pro­tec­tion of tra­di­tional cul­ture. Hao Shiyuan, head of the del­e­ga­tion and mem­ber of the Chi­nese Academy of So­cial Sciences, said at a sem­i­nar with Ja­panese law­mak­ers on Fri­day that Ti­betan cul­ture is an im­por­tant part of Chi­nese cul­ture, and it is an im­por­tant task for China to pro­tect and de­velop Ti­betan cul­ture while pro­mot­ing so­cial and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment. Yoshi­masa Hayashi, Ja­panese Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion, Cul­ture, Sports, Science and Tech­nol­ogy, said that as Ja­pan-China re­la­tion­ship re­turns to nor­mal track, it is hoped that more such ac­tiv­i­ties could be held to help Ja­panese peo­ple en­hance un­der­stand­ing of the Ti­betan cul­ture and to pro­mote bi­lat­eral friend­ship. The del­e­ga­tion also an­swered ques­tions from the Ja­panese au­di­ence on daily life of the Ti­betan peo­ple, col­lec­tion and preser­va­tion of Ti­betan re­li­gious books, and in­her­i­tance of Ti­betan cul­ture. The Ja­panese law­mak­ers said that they felt Ti­betan cul­ture in­ter­est­ing af­ter the sem­i­nar and that they hoped to have the op­por­tu­nity to visit Ti­bet in the fu­ture. The del­e­ga­tion vis­ited the Cho­taiji Tem­ple in Tokyo and ex­changed views with re­li­gious groups on Thurs­day morn­ing. They had a sem­i­nar with re­porters from ma­jor Ja­panese me­dia on Thurs­day af­ter­noon. The visit to Ja­pan is the first stop of an overseas ex­change agenda of the del­e­ga­tion. The del­e­ga­tion will leave Ja­pan on Sat­ur­day for Mon­go­lia and South Korea.
