Adjust font size:

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) said Thursday that it would further cooperate with China and its Tibet Autonomous Region on energy development.

UNIDO would particularly cooperate with Tibet on renewable energy development, which would contribute to ecological and environmental protection and tourism of Tibet, said Gustavo Aishemberg, director of the regional programs of UNIDO, at the First Forum on the Development of Tibet, China, being held in the Austrian capital.

He said UNIDO has much experience in ecological protection, which could be shared with China and the Tibetan region.

The two-day forum on Tibet is jointly sponsored by the State Council Information Office of China, the Chinese embassy in Austria, the permanent mission of China to the United Nations and other international organizations in Vienna, and Austrian organizations including the Organization to Support the Austrian and Chinese Economic Cooperations.

The forum has drawn some 200 participants from China, Austria, several European countries such as Germany, Norway, Bulgaria and Greece, and international organizations such as UNIDO.

It is focusing on discussion on Tibet's development mode, Tibetology research and development, its cultural development and relics protection, education, Tibetan medicines, and some other topics.
