BEIJING, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- Premier Wen Jiabao on Friday had a meeting with the 11th Panchen Lama Bainqen Erdini Qoigyijabu, at the Zhongnanhai compound in central Beijing, which is the office complex for both the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the State Council.

During the meeting, Wen, who is also a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee's Political Bureau, congratulated the Panchen Lama, as well as all Tibetan compatriots, on the forthcoming Tibetan New Year, which falls on February 22.

The premiere heard a report by the Panchen Lama on his life and work since he was enthroned 17 years ago. Wen praised and congratulated the Panchen Lama on his marked progress in Buddhist research and cultural and ethic aspects, noting that the Panchen Lama has behaved in a good style as a Living Buddha of the Tibetan Buddhism.

The year 2011 is the 60th anniversary of the Peaceful Liberation of Tibet, and over the past six decades, Tibet has experienced enormous changes thanks to the leadership of the Party and the government, the assistance by the people of all nationalities, and hard work and continuous efforts made by the people of Tibet from different ethnic groups, Wen said.
