On November 10, the State Council Information Office held a press conference to release the white paper “The Practice of the Party’s Strategies for Governing Tibet in the New Era and its Historic Achievements.”
A reporter asked at the meeting that properly handling the relationship between environmental protection and economic development is a global problem, especially in plateau areas with fragile ecological environments. How does the Tibet Autonomous Region do this? What kind of experience can you share with everyone?
Xu Zhitao, Vice Chairman of the Tibet Autonomous Region, said that the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is China’s ecological security barrier and the “Water Tower of Asia”, and its ecological status is very important. The Tibet Autonomous Region resolutely implements Xi Jinping’s thoughts on ecological civilization, adheres to the bottom line of ecological security, and implements the strictest ecological and environmental protection system. There are several main methods:
First, firmly establish the concept of ecological priority. The autonomous region has made major plans to build a national ecological civilization highland, create a national ecological civilization construction demonstration zone, and accelerate the construction of a beautiful and happy Tibet. It has promulgated and implemented more than 10 local environmental protection regulations including the “Tibet Autonomous Region National Ecological Civilization Highland Construction Regulations” and consciously promoted green development, circular development, and low-carbon development.
The second is to improve the ecological protection system. Implement the negative list for industrial access, water resources management, cultivated land red lines and basic grassland protection requirements, strictly prohibit high-pollution, high-energy consumption, and high-emission projects from entering Tibet, implement a “one-vote veto” system for environmental protection, and implement evaluation and assessment of ecological civilization construction goals, Systems such as out-of-service audit of natural resource assets, ecological and environmental protection inspection, and accountability for ecological and environmental damage.
The third is to strengthen ecological engineering construction. Implement the afforestation project in the “two rivers and four rivers” watersheds, eliminate “treeless households” and “treeless villages” where conditions permit, thoroughly implement the action plan for the prevention and control of air, water and soil pollution, and strengthen soil erosion, desertified land and degraded wetlands in key areas Governance, implement projects such as returning farmland to forest, returning grazing land to grassland, artificial grass planting, etc., comprehensively promote green and clean production, promote industrial ecology and ecological industrialization, and develop ecological economy and carbon sink economy.
When it comes to experience sharing, my personal experience is that for thousands of years, the Tibetan people have formed an ideological concept and lifestyle on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the “roof of the world”, that respects nature, respects nature, and lives in harmony with the natural ecology. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Central Committee has emphasized that ecological protection must be the first priority on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, and has made protecting the ecological environment one of the “four major issues” in Tibet’s work. Simply put, our experience is to cherish fine traditions and serve the overall interests of the country.
