China appears to have determined that a great way
to show it is not neglecting Tibetan culture is
to bring out a Tibetan language edition of the
Communist Party of China mouthpiece People’s
Daily. The People's Daily and Tibet Daily brought
out the first four-page edition of it on Aug1,
reported China’s official Xinhua news agency Aug
1. The Tibetan language party mouthpiece will be
circulated in Tibet Autonomous Region and areas
inhabited by Tibetans in neighboring Sichuan,
Yunnan, Qinghai and Gansu provinces, a statement
from Beijing-based People's Daily editorial office was cited as saying.

The Tibetan language edition will printed from
Tibet’s capital Lhasa, Sichuan’s capital Chengdu and Qinghai’s capital Xining.

The report said the newspaper aimed to contribute
to the economic development, social progress,
ethnic harmony and stability in Tibet with its
news coverage, the statement said.

Regarding the newspaper’s contents, the statement
was cited as saying it would publish major
guidelines of the Communist Party of China (CPC),
policies and decisions made by the central
government, including its ethnic policies.
