China Post's Support Plan for Tibet Post, based on the policy of the China Central Government Concerning Tibet, and the efforts of the whole country to support Tibet in solving Tibet Post's problems of a weak foundation, insufficient finance and talent shortages, has become a propellant force in the development of the Tibet Post and the local economy.
China Post considers supporting the development of Tibet and the Tibet Post as an important political task. With this in mind it has since 1999 sent four teams of 71 cadres and arranged two projects comprising 46 sub-projects at a total investment of about 400 million yuan (US$62.12).
The fifth team of 26 cadres – the largest ever -- will be sent to Tibet within the year.
These talents, comprising professional technicians and management cadres, have been selected from post companies nationwide. They have supported management skills and technology development and gained great experience in Tibet.
They consider Tibet as their second home, and have conquered difficulties such as harsh natural environment and worked shoulder-to-shoulder with the people of Tibet in initiating a creative work pattern for the Tibet Post.
Postal counterparts in 20 provinces and municipalities have gone all out to support Tibet in finance, material and human resources.
This strong support network has alleviated the problems of inefficient financing and talent shortages, enabling Tibet Post to speed up its reform and development.
Its infrastructure, technology level, network structure and integrated communications capabilities have greatly improved, and are almost on a level with those of the national post.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the peaceful liberation of Tibet. In this important historical period, China Post will firmly implement the decisions and arrangements of the Party Central Committee and the State Council and continue to strengthen the work of supporting the development of Tibet Post.
