Ecological protection

While making improving people's livelihoods a top priority, the region is also carefully balancing that task along with ecological protection efforts.

"Hailed as the 'Roof of the World', the 'Water Tower of Asia' and the 'The Third Pole of the Earth', the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is often regarded as a haven for wildlife and a gene pool of plateau species, as well as a key ecological safety barrier for China and even Asia," Wu said.

Placing more than half its land area under the strictest ecological supervision, the region prohibits any industries or projects involving heavy pollution, high energy usage or excessive water consumption.

"Tibet will continue to develop an ecological civilization … and we will continue to safeguard the national ecological safety barrier during the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25)," Wu said.

"We make all these efforts to make the mountains greener, the waters clearer and the sky bluer," Wu said.
