Talking to the Panchen Lama, the premier pledged that in the future the regional ethnic autonomy will continue, while greater efforts will be made to improve the lives of Tibetan compatriots, protect the environment and the region's cultural traditions, as well as the religious freedom of the Tibetan people.

Wen asked the Panchen Lama to further deepen his research of academic works on Buddhist doctrines in an effort to ascertain positive thoughts from Tibetan Buddhist doctrines, so as to lead the Buddhists lamas and followers in loving the country, abiding by laws and abiding by Buddhism commandments.

He also called on the Panchen Lama to play an even greater and more positive role in safeguarding the national unification and unity of all ethnic groups.

Present at the meeting was Du Qinglin, a vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and director of the United Front Work Department of the CPC Central Committee.
