10:24, November 17, 2010  

Tibet had made notable achievements in the past 60 years and its development reflected the requirements of social advancement and the fundamental wishes of the Tibetan people, Chinese Tibetologist Pubu Cering told the ongoing China Tibetan Culture Week here.

Pubu is heading a Tibetologist delegation for the week, which was launched in the Spanish capital on Monday. It is co-sponsored by the Chinese State Council Information Office, the government of the Tibet Autonomous Region and the Chinese embassy in Spain.

At a seminar attended by dozens of overseas Chinese and students, he outlined the achievements that Tibet had made during its modernization process, saying the Tibetan people had always been the principle force and the main beneficiary of development.

He said Tibet's gross domestic product had increased from 174 million RMB (26.24 million U.S. dollars) to 44.1 billion RMB (6.65 billion dollars) between 1959 and 2009.

Apart from the economic increase, Tibet had also made great progress in education, technology, medical health and cultural protection, Pubu said.

With the help and support of the central Chinese government and the Chinese people, Tibet would surely build a more brilliant future, he said.
