The economy in Tibet is booming and the local culture is very strong, Mario Sepi, president of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), said Friday.

"My first impressions are that the Tibetan economy is clearly booming," Sepi said at a news briefing after leading an EESC delegation to Tibet on Sept. 11-15.

"If you wish to improve people's life, you have to develop the economy," said Sepi, who was invited to Tibet by the China Economic and Social Council "to see concretely how things are on the ground."

During his visit, Sepi met with local government officials and representatives from non-governmental organizations. He also conducted comprehensive contacts with Tibetan residents.

Mario Sepia, president of the European Economic and Social Committe (EESC), speaks during a press conference about his recent visit to China's Tibet Autonomous Region in Brussels, capital of Belgium on Sept. 18, 2009. The economy in Tibet is booming and the local culture is very strong, Mario Sepi said on Friday.

The delegation, Sepi said, noticed that "there is universal health care" and "a good level of welfare protection" in Tibet.

Sepi said the culture in Africa, where he once worked, is rich and strong, but is dwarfed by that of Tibet.
