China has made much headway in improving the local economy and people’s wellbeing in Tibet Autonomous Region and its eco-environmental protection over the past decade. All 21 formerly poor border counties in Tibet had shaken off poverty by 2019. The economic growth of border counties in Tibet has been higher than the average level of the whole region over the past 10 years. In 2021, the per capita disposable income of rural residents in 21 border counties in Tibet exceeded 14,000 yuan (about $2,089), maintaining double-digit growth for multiple years.

In This Story: Tibet

Tibet is a region in East Asia covering much of the Tibetan Plateau spanning about 2,500,000 km2. It is the traditional homeland of the Tibetan people as well as some other ethnic groups such as Monpa, Tamang, Qiang, Sherpa and Lhoba peoples and is now also inhabited by considerable numbers of Han Chinese and Hui people.

Tibet is the highest region on Earth, with an average elevation of 4,380 m (14,000 ft). Located in the Himalayas, the highest elevation in Tibet is Mount Everest, Earth’s highest mountain, rising 8,848.86 m (29,032 ft) above sea level.

The Tibetan Empire emerged in the 7th century. At its height in the 9th century, the Tibetan Empire extended far beyond the Tibetan Plateau, from Central Asian’s Tarim Basin and the Pamirs in the west to Yunnan and Bengal in the southeast.

The region declared its independence in 1913 and maintained its autonomy until 1951. Today, China governs western and central Tibet as the Tibet Autonomous Region while the eastern areas are now mostly ethnic autonomous prefectures within Sichuan, Qinghai and other neighbouring provinces.
