Manufacturing in Tibet? China continues to to invest inland. 11/15/2010

An article on China Tibet Online‘s website caught my eye yesterday.  It talks about a new industrial park project to be located near Lhasa, Tibet.  The “Tibet Ethnic Culture Industrial Park” concept is going to try to attract new investors for the project at next week’s 5th China Beijing International Cultural and Creative Industry Expo to be held later next week.  The industrial park will focus on manufacturing of cultural handicraft’s and similar products to support Tibet’s growing tourist industry.

I haven’t been to Tibet, but I cant say that I’m overly excited to hear about investment in the manufacturing sector in the region.  I have been told that Tibet truly is one of the most beautiful parts of China – hopefully I can get there before it becomes over-industrialized.
