The Tibet autonomous region will never pursue economic growth at the cost of damaging the environment, the region's chairman said on Wednesday.

Tibet achieved GDP growth of 10 percent last year, the highest of all provincial-level regions in China. This year, it has set a growth target of around 10 percent.

"We will ensure that the goal is achieved without causing harm to the region's environment. There is no room to bargain," Qi Zhala, chairman of the region, said at a panel discussion with the Tibet delegation on the sidelines of the ongoing annual session of the National People's Congress in Beijing.
