Aid to Tibet totaled 7.57 billion yuan as the nation redoubled its efforts to spur development in the region during the 11th Five-Year Plan period, according to reports from the fourth session of the Ninth Tibet People's Congress.

During the session, Padma Choling, Chairman of Tibet Autonomous Region, reviewed the progress in the past five years of Tibet's development program. He highlighted achievements, such as the first working conference on financial support for Tibet, the special conferences held by national ministries on systematic supports for Tibet and the remarkable improvement of the program's working mechanism.

At present, there are 2,661 support cadres working in Tibet. Programs and financial flows focus on three aspects of rural areas, namely rural economy, rural development and rural demography, as well as people's livelihoods.
