TAR’s 2009 GDP growth to be above 10%

(TibetanReview.net, Jan 15) – While the forecast of economic growth for China for 2009 remains bleak, the increasingly Chinese populated Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) expects to garner a healthy figure of more than 10 percent, thanks, no doubt, to Beijing’s relentless pouring in of investments. The forecast was made by Qiangba Puncog, chairman of the regional government, who said the plateau region saw a 10.1 percent increase in gross domestic product (GDP) last year, reported the Chinese communist party mouthpiece People’s Daily Online Jan 14 citing Xinhua.

Qiangba was presenting his work report to the regional people’s congress which opened Jan 14 in Lhasa.

The above forecast means that the TAR will continue to have the highest GDP growth throughout the PRC. Both Beijing and Shanghai, for instance, announced targets of 9 percent of economic growth earlier this week, reported Xinhua Jan 14.
