Sept. 2, 2016 -- Lhasa's annual Shoton Festival, which started on Thursday, will give the city a significant economic boost, as it welcomes a large number of tourists during the weeklong event, the Lhasa Tourism Bureau said.
The celebration has shifted its focus to cultural performances and the integration of sports competitions and trade and investment solicitations in recent years.
The city, which received a record 1.7 million visitors from home and abroad during the event in 2015, saw a 21 percent injection of revenue over the previous year.
