14:52, December 18, 2008  

Among the some 34,000 sitting local National People's Congress (NPC) deputies elected at the four levels of Tibet autonomous region, city, county and township, Tibetan and other ethnic minorities account for over 94% of the total, according to news released recently at a press conference hosted by the Standing Committee of Tibetan NPC to mark the 30th anniversary of reform and opening-up.

Since the implementation of the system of regional autonomy for ethnic minorities in Tibet, especially over the past 30 years of reform and opening-up, Tibetan people and other ethnic minorities have actively engaged in the administration of national and local affairs, offering advice and suggestions on the development of Tibet.

Meanwhile, Tibet has intensified its efforts in selecting, appointing and training cadres and talents of ethnic minorities.

At present, Tibetan and other ethnic minorities account for 70.42% of the incumbent provincial-level leadership of the autonomous region, of which, chairman of the Standing Committee of Tibetan NPC, chairman of Autonomous Region People’s Government, chairman of the Autonomous Region Committee of Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and president of Autonomous Region High People’s Court are all Tibetans.

Among all the principal leaders of the 74 local Party committees, governments, and local committees of the NPC and CPPCC at the autonomous region, municipal and county levels, Party secretaries and township heads in the 682 townships of the autonomous region, cadres of Tibetan and other ethnic minorities account for over 86%.

By 2007, most of the 35,477 professionals and skilled personnel of ethnic minorities, which account for 76.3% of the total, are predominantly Tibetans.

Party cadres, government officials, professionals and technicians, who are predominantly Tibetans, have become the mainstays of leadership and cadre teams at all levels and in various professions in the Tibet Autonomous Region.
