The Tibet Autonomous Region is one of five provincial-level autonomous regions in China. The region is also home to more than 10 ethnic groups including the Han, Hui, Moinba, Lhoba, Naxi, Nu and Dulong. And there are the Moinba, Lhoba and Naxi ethnic townships. In areas where people of the ethnic minorities live concentratedly, autonomous organs have been set up for the locals to handle their own affairs. This constitutes a basic political system of China.
Since its founding in 1965, the broad masses of the Tibetan people have been enjoying political, economic and cultural rights bestowed by law. Under the leadership of the Central Government, Tibet has gained satisfactory socio-economic development, and the Tibetans now live a better life. Facts testify to the truth that national regional autonomy is a fundamental system that guarantees the Tibetans be masters of their own fate and enjoying common prosperity together with peoples of other ethnic groups in China. The system conforms to the actual situation of China, Tibet included.
