The exhibition showcased the progress Tibet has made in politics, economy, culture and social construction in the past 50 years under the direction of China's ethnic policies and with the help and support from other parts of the country.

A Tibetan visitor said, "What impressed me most is transportation. Now there are direct flights, railroads and highway to Tibet. You can drive all the way from Beijing to Lhasa by express way."

A Tibetan visitor said, "After the peaceful liberation of Tibet, our country has invested heavily in education and culture in Tibet. The illiteracy rate used to be 90 percent. Now literacy rate is 90 percent."

Subsidies from the central government account for 93 percent of Tibet's budget, with only 7 percent from local revenues. This has led some Tibetans visitors to appreciate today's life.
