On June 8, a youth delegation comprised of 30 young people and three staff members from the University of Hong Kong and Chinese University of Hong Kong started their six-day exchange program in Tibet.
This event was a return visit after a youth delegation from Tibet visited Hong Kong this May.
The youth exchange program between Tibet and Hong Kong was established in 2003. Each year, both sides would select excellent young people to participate in the exchange visit. Thus far, there have been 15 exchanges, with more than 700 youths from the two sides having participated.
