Gurung said in his remarks that this exhibition will be a milestone in attaining the real sustainable development in the two friendly countries and further enhancing cultural relations at people's level.

It will also contribute in materializing the immense potentials of both countries especially to boost up tourism industries in achieving our common goals and mutual benefits, he said.

In his speech, Basang Thundrup said that as an important part of the Chinese civilization, the Tibetan culture embodies the characteristics of the plateau and unique geographic feature.
