    Tibet will hold a tourism souvenir handicraft competition this month to promote the local industry.

    Considered one of the pillars for the local economy, the competition is being organized by the Tibetan Autonomous Regional Government in Lhasa.

    Officials say local tourism souvenirs are popular among tourists, but standards can be improved. Most souvenirs here are made in homestead workshops so better links to market demands are needed.

    The competition, with a top prize of 150,000 yuan, will help develop rich tourist resources, culture and art for ethnic groups in the region, said officials.
