The local office of tourism announced it will continue to develop its infrastructures and services to fulfill those ambitions. The central government has already spent 53 millions of dollars between 2001 and 2005 to boost tourism in Tibet.
The region hopes to double its income from tourism thanks to this dynamism, with annual receipts of around 2,5 billions of dollars by 2015.
According to the report, more than 300 000 jobs will be created in this sector. The rural areas of Tibet are also included in the project, as the government announced it wants to promote tourism in the entire region and wants "all the people" living there to "get rich" from this activity.
However, many Tibetans living under Chinese rule believe that all the investments and development projects mostly benefit Han Chinese migrants and state-owned companies, which dominate the economy.
