BEIJING -- China will draw up policies this year
to boost the development in Xinjiang and Tibet as
well as other Tibetan-inhabited areas, Premier Wen Jiabao said Friday.

"We will focus on formulating and implementing
policies for economic and social development in
Xinjiang, Tibet, and Tibetan ethnic areas in
Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu and Qinghai provinces,"
Wen said in his government work report to the
annual session of the National People's Congress,
the country's top legislature.

Local government statistics unveiled earlier this
year showed that Tibet's gross domestic product
(GDP) was expected to grow by 12 percent to 43.7
billion yuan ($6.4 billion) last year, and
Xinjiang's GDP was expected to grow 8 percent to
427 billion yuan, as both the two remote ethnic
regions have been recovering from two deadly riots.
