Tibet to celebrate 50th anniversary of region’s founding

Top Chinese political advisor Yu Zhengsheng leading a central government delegation is in Lhasa, capital of Tibet Autonomous Region, to attend celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the region’s founding.

On Sunday, the central government issued a white paper on Tibet, saying “Tibet is now in its golden age.”

The white paper says since democratic reform was carried out in 1959 and regional autonomy came into practice in 1965, Tibet has established the new socialist system and achieved historic leaps in its economic and social development.
