May 15,2018--A Tibetan delegation from China’s National People’s Congress (NPC), headed by Padma Wangdu, party chief of Lhasa and member of the standing committee of the CPC regional committee of Tibet Autonomous Region, visited Washington D.C. Thursday.
Padma Wangdu held talks with American representatives and senators and gave an introduction of the historic changes that have taken place in Tibet since the implementation of the system of regional ethnic autonomy and the historic achievements made in Tibet’s economic and social development over the past 40 years of reform and opening-up, especially since the 18th CPC National Congress.
He said misunderstandings and bias about Tibet’s development still exist in America due to different social systems and development stages. This visit is expected to let Americans learn a real Tibet through the voice of Tibetans.
He said that the visit has gained fruitful results. Tibet Autonomous Region will continue to support and participate in friendly exchange activities between China and America.
The delegation will visit San Francisco after leaving Washington.
