Exile Tibetan administration appoints new Tokyo and Canberra mission heads

(TibetanReview.net, Apr16, 2014) The exile Tibetan administration at Dharamsala on Apr 14 announced two repostings and one new appointment affecting two of its overseas missions. As a result, the Offices of Tibet in Tokyo and Canberra will have new Representative-heads while a serving Representative will head back to Dharamsala.

Mr Lungtok, currently a Joint Secretary at the Department of Security, Central Tibetan Administration, will be the new Representative at the Office of Tibet, Japan. He takes charge on Jun 16. He had joined the exile Tibetan administration service in 2006 as Deputy Secretary at the Office of Tibet, Japan, and was moved to his current Dharamsala post just last year.

Mr. Lhakpa Tshoko has been moved from Tokyo to Canberra as the new Representative, replacing Mr Sonam Norbu Dagpo. He takes charge on Jun 25. Mr Tshoko had joined service in 1982 and had previously served as Secretary at the office of Tibet, Japan, from 1984- 2001. Following a stint at the Bureau of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, New Delhi, from 2001 to 2007, he moved back to Tokyo as Representative.

Mr Dagpo takes over as a Secretary at the exile administration’s Department of Information and International Relations, Dharamsala, on Jul 2.

Representatives at the Offices of Tibet, of which there are a total of 11, are appointed by the exile Tibetan administration at Dharamsala, although they are designated as Representatives of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
