The “Past and Present: Photo Exhibition for the 60th Anniversary of Tibet’s Democratic Reform” was held on March 28 at Nepal College. A total of 160 photographs were exhibited.
The exhibition was hosted by the Chinese Embassy in Nepal and the China Association for Preservation & Development of Tibetan Culture. People from all walks of life in Nepal, Tibetans living in Nepal, and representatives of Chinese institutions came and viewed the exhibition.
Krishna Bahadur Mahara, Nepal’s Speaker of the House of Representatives, said that the photo exhibition was rich in content and that they could understand the development of Tibet’s political, economic, cultural, and religious fields from it. Nepal is directly adjacent to the Tibet Autonomous Region in China, and economic, trade, and cultural exchanges between the two regions have a long history. There are also broad prospects for cooperation between Nepal and Tibet. China’s development, especially development in the Tibet Autonomous Region, has important implications for Nepal. The Nepalese government firmly supports the “One China” principle and does not allow any forces to engage in anti-China activities on Nepalese soil. Nepal is willing to strengthen cooperation and exchange with various provinces, municipalities, and autonomous regions in China, including the Tibet Autonomous Region, under the framework of the "Belt and Road" initiative.
