China Daily (Canada) - - TOP NEWS -

CANBERRA — A del­e­ga­tion of Na­tional Peo­ple’s Congress leg­is­la­tors from the Ti­bet au­ton­o­mous re­gion con­cluded a three­day visit to Aus­tralia on Wed­nes­day.

The del­e­ga­tion, headed by Kon­cho Gyalt­sen, deputy to the Peo­ple’s Congress of Ti­bet au­ton­o­mous re­gion and chair­man of the Stand­ing Com­mit­tee of the Qamdo Peo­ple’s Congress, met with lo­cal politi­cians in New South Wales and the Aus­tralian Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory, as well as Ti­betans in Aus­tralia.

Kon­cho Gyalt­sen said that mem­bers of the del­e­ga­tion are all wit­nesses to the de­vel­op­ment and changes tak­ing place in Ti­bet. He hoped that through face-to­face ex­changes, the del­e­ga­tion will help en­hance un­der­stand­ing be­tween the two sides and boost co­op­er­a­tion of the leg­is­la­tors with their Aus­tralian coun­ter­parts.

He noted that Ti­bet has al­ways been an in­sep­a­ra­ble part of China, adding that Ti­bet’s econ­omy is grow­ing steadily, so­ci­ety is sta­ble and peo­ple from all eth­nic groups help each other, en­joy­ing re­li­gious free­dom, a bet­ter en­vi­ron­ment and im­prov­ing liv­ing stan­dards.

Dur­ing the talks, Aus­tralian of­fi­cials ex­pressed their hopes for con­tin­ued ex­changes be­tween the two sides, en­hanced mu­tual un­der­stand­ing and deep­ened trade and eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion.
