WARSAW  -- A delegation of Chinese Tibetologists on Thursday met
teachers and students from Warsaw University and briefed them on the
social-economic development in Tibet.

At a symposium attended by more than 30 teachers and students from
the university, Shen Kaiyun, head of the delegation, said that Tibet
has gone through great changes in the past five decades and its
cultural heritages have been protected and passed on very well, which
is inseparable from the efforts made by the Chinese government.

According to Shen, the Chinese central government has allocated a
total of 170 billion yuan (24.9 billion US dollars) to Tibet over the
past decades and made many favorable policies to build a well-off Tibet.

When asked about the government's investment in Tibet, Shen said that
the Chinese government had spent much more money on Tibet than the
autonomous region generated.

Besides its efforts to help develop the economy in Tibet, the
government also did a lot to enhance its cultural and ecological
protection, Shen added.

Shen invited the Polish people who are interested in Tibet to visit
the land in the future.

The delegation of Chinese Tibetologists arrived here Monday for a
four-day visit.
