    Abstract

    2015 is a special year for Tibet. Not only did Beijing celebrate the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR), but Premier Li Keqiang mentioned Tibet in his Work Report at the NPC in March; important visits of senior leaders to the region took place (Yu Zhengsheng, Sun Chunlan, Wang Yang, Gen Xu Qiliang, Du Qinglin ); Vice-Premier Wang Yang visited Lhasa (August 17-18), just a week before the two-day Sixth Tibet Work Forum (on August 24 and 25) which decided the future directions for the Roof of the World. The lecture will focus on the infrastructure developments in the plateau (airports, roads, railway, hydropower plants, etc.) and the latest happenings in the political scene.
