CECC 2015 Annual Report finds no evidence that China is allowing Tibetans to have a say in Tibet’s economic development
October 9, 2015
The Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) released its annual report for 2015 on October 8, 2015, in which it challenged China’s contention of enabling the Tibetan people to have a say in their affairs by asserting that it "observed no evidence during its 2002 to 2015 period of reporting that the Party or government solicited systematic or representative input from the Tibetan population on economic development in the Tibetan autonomous areas of China." It said the United States government should stress to the Chinese government the importance of respecting and protecting the Tibetan culture and language.
The Commission noted that its "annual reports have documented implementation of a development model— "Chinese characteristics with Tibetan traits" that effectively boosts economic growth and household income. At the same time, officials deny Tibetans adequate rights to protect their culture, language, religion, and environment."
