"Meticulous efforts must be paid to the tasks of reform, development, and stability to boost leapfrog development and maintain perennial stability in Tibet," Hu told the Tibetan delegation to the National People's Congress (NPC), China's top legislature, which is convening its annual session in Beijing.

Hu stressed the fostering of the region's peculiar and competitive industries, development of modern agriculture and animal husbandry,improving infrastructure, and environmental protection in achieving leapfrog development.

He also called for greater government funding for public service programs and for remote, agricultural, and pastoral regions in Tibet.

The president was with the Tibetan delegation to deliberate a government work report and the country's new five-year blueprint delivered at the Fourth Session of the 11th NPC.
