Letter: Why China can't let go of Tibet

Tibet region is a highland area that is rich in agricultural soils
than most other parts of Asia.

The province of China experiences rainfall throughout the year, a
phenomenon which allows for farming all the year round.

Tibet alone is endowed with resources twice the rest of most other
Chinese provinces.

The panoramic rich agricultural land in Tibet provides both direct
and indirect employment opportunities for almost a third of Chinese.

The area also has a lot of minerals that are an important development
resource. The area also has an oil reserve prospect that is critical
to industrialisation of China.

If China lets off Tibet, it will mean that it will be deprived of a
huge proportion of  its industrial raw materials.
