Beijing: Tibet’s 2018 GDP has reached $22 billion — about 191 times more than the 1959 figure calculated at comparable prices, said a white paper released on Wednesday by China. The Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama had fled the country in 1959. And in the next 60 years the hard work of the people of Tibet saw agriculture and animal husbandry become modernised, documented the State Council Information Office’s document titled ‘Democratic Reform in Tibet — Sixty Years On’. The added value of agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry, fisheries and related service industries rose from 128 million yuan in 1959 to 13.41 billion yuan in 2018, Xinhua news agency reported.
