At a seminar held on Aug. 28, the delegation was engaged in in-depth discussions with representatives from 11 influential news organizations in Australia, briefing them on China's ethnic policies, especially the preferential policies implemented to promote Tibet's development, and laying out facts and examples to demonstrate Tibet's rapid growth.

Speaking highly of Tibet's economic and social achievements, Australian media representatives expressed readiness to enhance Tibetan cultural exchanges.

On Aug. 29, the delegation also met with Daryl Maguire, member of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly. During the meeting, the delegation gave a presentation on the development of Tibet's medical care sector and tourism, among others.
