The leading Communist Party group's secretary in the Tourism Department of Tibet's autonomous region, has revealed in a news press conference of the 'double conference', held on the evening of the 12th, that during the twelve Five-Year Plan, efforts will be made that by 2015 Tibet will receive 15 million tourists, tourism income will reach about 16 billion RMB, and the number of people working in tourism will reach more than 300000.

During the 12th Five Year Plan in Tibet, this target will shall be accomplished through implementing the  'tourism redouble plan', expanding the three tourism markets (people leaving the borders, people entering the borders and domestic tourism), realizing the superiority of tourism products, directing towards a leap forward in the predominance of tourism economy.

During the eleventh Five Year Program (2006-2010), along with the continuous maturation of the synthesized transport and communication networks in Tibet, the tourism industry has accelerated development. During the eleventh Five Year Program, the 350 million RMB fund for the construction of tourism infrastructure, set up by the central government, has made Tibet's tourism infrastructure achieve a huge improvement. Data shows that up to now, in the whole region there are 21 A-grade national tourist attraction, among which 11 are 4A attractions. During the eleventh Five Year Program, Tibet has received a total number of 21.25 million foreign and domestic tourists, an annual average growth of 30.6%, and achieved a total tourism income of 22.62 billion RMB, an annual increase of 29.8%.
