Photo exhibition on Tibet held in Australia

(2009/05/22)

    Photo exhibition "Tibet of China: it's past and present" was held Saturday in Adelaide, capital of South Australia, Australia.

    Nearly a hundred visitors were drawn to the exhibition, including those from the academic and political circles, and representatives of overseas Chinese.

    On display are more than a hundred pictures on Tibet's culture and people in four parts: "past and present of Tibet," "old Tibet in feudal serfdom," "beautiful land of abundance," and "new look of Tibet."

    Mao Runlong, councilor and consul general of the Chinese Embassy in Australia, said this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Democratic Reform in Tibet, and the photo exhibition shows in a realistic way the changes and developments that happened in Tibet to the Australian people, which will help them learn a real Tibet, its past and present.

    The exhibition is co-sponsored by the Overseas Chinese Association of South Australia, the Chinese Writers' Association of South Australia, and the Association of Australia China Friendship.

    Previously the exhibition was held in Canberra.
