LHASA, May 20 (Xinhua) -- A regional-level museum association was inaugurated Saturday in Lhasa, the capital of southwest China's Xizang Autonomous Region.

Zhao Xingbang, an official with the regional culture and tourism department, noted that the association will help improve the overall service and audience experience of museums and expand the influence of Tibetan culture and museums in international exchanges.

"Building these exhibition halls is an important way to strengthen the standardized and scientific protection of movable cultural relics collected in monasteries," said Palden Bawo, curator of the monastery exhibition hall of Nenang Monastery in Lhasa.

Xizang's 43 museums, including various exhibition halls and memorial halls, greeted 2 million visitors in 2023.  ■
