2021-10-20 18:27

On October 20, 2021, the Event of  MFA Presenting Tibet to the World was held at Lanting of the Ministry of Foreign  Affairs (MFA) with the theme of "China on a New Journey: A New Chapter of  Development for a Happy New Tibet". State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi  attended and addressed the event. Secretary of the Communist Party of China  (CPC) Xizang Autonomous Regional Committee Wang Junzheng and Acting Chairman of  the People's Government of Xizang Autonomous Region Yan Jinhai delivered  presentations. Party Secretary of the CPC Committee of the MFA Qi Yu, Vice  Foreign Minister Le Yucheng, Assistant Foreign Minister Deng Li, diplomatic  envoys, and representatives of international organizations in China attended the  event.

Wang Yi said that this year is of  great importance in the development of Xizang. 70 years ago, under the  relentless efforts of the CPC, Xizang realized peaceful liberation and  transformed itself from a backward serfdom society to a moderately prosperous  socialist one, creating a political miracle of "a historic leap of thousands of  years". In the past 70 years, under the leadership of the CPC, people from  various ethnic groups in Xizang have worked together and strived with one heart  to create a strong sense of community among the Chinese nation, bringing  earthshaking changes of historic importance to its situation, and creating  another miracle of "a historic leap of thousands of years" in development.  Today's Xizang has become an epitome of the success of China's leapfrog  development, a vivid portrayal of the progress in China's democracy and human  rights, and an important window for China's opening-up and cooperation with the  world. It has realized the goal of a happy and moderately prosperous life for  all this year as scheduled. People of all ethnic groups are entitled to full and  equal rights in political, economic and social fields. Freedom of religious  belief and the culture of minority groups are under full protection and further  development. A series of international conferences, such as the China Tibet  Tourism and Culture Expo, Forum on the Development of Tibet, China and  Trans-Himalaya Forum for International Cooperation, has demonstrated great  vitality and achieved fruitful results in the Belt and Road cooperation with  neighboring countries.

Wang Yi said that during General  Secretary Xi Jinping's visit to Xizang in July, he called for efforts to fully  implement the Party's guidelines for governing Xizang in the new era and write a  new chapter of lasting peace and stability and high-quality development in the  plateau region. With facilitating domestic development and promoting local  opening-up as its important mission, the MFA will resolutely implement the  decisions and plans of the CPC Central Committee, leverage its unique  advantages, and support Xizang in promoting economic and social development,  expanding opening-up and cooperation with the world, building itself into an  international model in ecological progress, maintaining security, stability and  ethnic unity, and opposing any separatist activity that sabotages Xizang's  security and stability, in order to make greater contributions to building a  prosperous, happy and beautiful Xizang.

Wang Yi stressed that during the  past 70 years, Xizang has upended its situation by transforming itself from a  backward, impoverished and isolated society to a progressive, prosperous and  open one. The extraordinary achievements made in Xizang are a splendid chapter  in the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, and important evidence of China's  specific modernization path. China's opening-up and development have always been  closely linked to the world. We will continue to provide new opportunities and  create new space for the world with our own development. We will work with all  countries to implement the Global Development Initiative proposed by President  Xi Jinping, keep promoting a global community of development with a shared  future, and create a more peaceful, stable and prosperous future for the  world.

Wang Junzheng said that since the  18th National Congress of the CPC, General Secretary Xi Jinping has personally  chartered the path forward and mapped out the plans of Xizang-related work,  defined the Party's guidelines for governing Xizang in the new era, and promoted  comprehensive progress and historic achievements in all fronts in Xizang. As a  result, a more prosperous, progressive, thriving, confident and open socialist  new Xizang is shown to the world. China welcomes people of all walks of life  from home and abroad to experience a happy new Xizang and jointly paint a new  picture of Xizang's development. Yan Jinhai introduced the achievements Xizang  has made in achieving lasting peace and stability and green and high-quality  development in ethnic harmony, people's livelihood, ecological conservation and  international exchanges.

Russian Ambassador to China  Andrey Denisov, Nepalese Ambassador to China Mahendra Bahadur Pandey, and  Nigerian Ambassador to China Baba Ahmad Jidda said in their speeches that Xizang  is an integral part of China. Thanks to the strong support of China's Central  Government and the collective efforts of all ethnic groups, Xizang has made  remarkable achievements in various fields. They are deeply impressed by its  unique ethnic culture, green and clean ecological environment, secure and  harmonious diverse society, and hospitable local people of all ethnic groups.  They believe Xizang will have an even brighter future and they are ready to  further promote friendly exchanges and mutually beneficial cooperation between  their countries and Xizang. The Head of Daga Township, Qushui County, Lasa, a  primary school teacher from Shenzha County, Naqu, and a living Buddha of Dalong  Temple in Linzhou County shared the stories around them by short videos, and  introduced the effective measures to eradicate poverty, protect the traditional  culture and freedom of religious belief. French Director Jean-MichelCarré made a  speech via video link to share his experience of filming documentaries in Xizang  over the past ten years, hoping that the international community will have a  better understanding of a real Xizang.

The launch ceremony of the  commemorative envelopes marking the Event Presenting Tibet to the World was also  held.

Up until now, the MFA has held  such global presentation events for 22 provinces and autonomous regions.
