Feb.2,2018--In 2017, the disposable per capita income of rural residents in Tibet reached 10,330 yuan, up 13.6 percent from the previous year and maintaining a double-digit increase for 15 consecutive years, according to the Department of Agriculture and Animal Husbandry of Tibet Autonomous Region.
In recent years, Tibet has attached great importance to the development of rural areas, agriculture and farmers. The production of grain, vegetable, meat and dairy in the region has surged to a record high.
Thanks to the supply-side structural reform in agriculture, Tibet has developed an industrial pattern featuring highland barley, prataculture, yak, diary, Tibetan pig and sheep.
Besides, Tibet has pushed forward green and high-quality development to improve ecological environment and promote tourism growth. 
In 2017, 150,000 people were lifted out of poverty, and 1,705 villages and 25 counties in the region were removed from the list of poverty-stricken areas.
