LHASA, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- Southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region reported double-digit gross domestic product growth for the 19th consecutive year in 2011, the regional government chairman said Monday.

Tibet's GDP is estimated to expand by 12.6 percent year-on-year to 60.5 billion yuan (9.6 billion U.S. dollars) this year, Padma Choling told the annual regional economic work conference.

The per capita disposal income for urban population rose at an estimated annual pace of 7.8 percent. Meanwhile, the per capita net earning for farmers and herdsmen climbed 13.6 percent year-on-year, the ninth year for double-digit growth, said Padma Choling.

Local authorities continued to build roads and bring water, electricity, gas, telecommunications, radio and television, and postal service to remote regions this year, he said.

The local government helped 223,000 farmers and herdsmen gain access to clean drinking water and 89,000 get access to electricity, the top regional official said.
