Presenter: Yongqiang Yao (National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences)

The 10 year site survey in western China shows that Ali area, Tibet, can be the best choice for astronomical observations over the East Asian regions. A new site in Ali area has been selected and begun construction for small telescopes and detailed site characterization. This talk presents site survey results to show advantages of Ali area, by comparing with other good sites in the world, and reports the conditions of Ali site and further plan for site monitoring and site development. Though it will take two years to finally identify the site quality, current infrastructure of Ali site allow to run small telescopes in advance, and we actively encourage the various cooperation.
