It connects the Silk Road Economic Belt and Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar Economic Corridor,” Da Chun, Party chief of Gyirong county, said at a promotional conference for the festival in Lhasa on Sunday.He said that Gyirong expected to be a modern zone in cross-border economic cooperation in the Tibet region and the whole of South Asia.Zhang Jing, owner of the Jinyu Hotel in Gyirong, told the Global Times that all the 39 rooms in the hotel had been booked out about two weeks ago thanks to the festival.Zhang, from Chengdu, Southwest Chinas Sichuan Province, came to Gyirong more than 10 years ago and has run her hotel business for three years. The majority of her guests are pilgrims from India and Nepal.”The business of the hotel is getting better and better. We believe there is a bright future for Gyirong in developing trade and tourism,” Zhang said.Ding Yueyi, a Gyirong resident, said she hoped the festival could promote the border town to attract more tourists from other regions of China and probably the world as the county has a nice view of Mount Qomolangma, known internationally as Mount Everest. RELATED ARTICLES:China, Nepal upgrade ties Xi’s India and Nepal visits bring trilateral ties in focusChinese restoration specialists help Nepal recover soul of Kathmandu Valley culturePosted in: SOCIETY,CHINA FOCUS/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1167012;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes/channel_right.html”);load_file(“/includes/footer.html”);$(document).ready(function($){$(“#channel-list .row-content”).each(function(){  if($(this).children().length==1){$(this).children().css(width,100%);}
