BEIJING, June 25 (Xinhua) -- Bainqen Erdini Qoigyijabu, the 11th Panchen Lama, on Saturday visited an exhibition marking the 60th anniversary of the peaceful liberation of Tibet in Beijing.
During his visit lasting about an hour, Panchen showed great interest in the exhibition and said that Tibet made great achievements in social, economic and cultural development over the past six decades led by the Communist Party of China (CPC).
"Today's Tibet enjoys a harmonious and stable society, and various religions and religious sects get along well with each other," he said.
History has proved that only under the CPC leadership can Tibet prosper, people feel happy and Tibetan Buddhism develop healthily, he said.
The exhibition, being held from June 15 to July 8, with 500 photos, more than 30 relics, 30 tables and graphs and video clips, focused on the remarkable development in Tibet during the past six decades.
It is organized by the United Front Work Department of the CPC Central Committee, Information Office of the State Council, National Development and Reform Commission, State Ethnic Affairs Commission, the government of the Tibet Autonomous Region, and Xinhua News Agency.
The exhibition is free and open to the public. It will be held once again in mid July in Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet Autonomous Region.
