  After the Centennial Celebration of the Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, President of the State, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission came to the snow-covered plateau on his first domestic inspection tour-he visited Tibet from July 21 to 23.

  This is the first time Xi Jinping has visited the snow-covered plateau in 10 years. It is also the 70th anniversary of the peaceful liberation of Tibet. As General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, Chairman of the State, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission, Xi Jinping went to Tibet to celebrate the peaceful liberation of Tibet. This is the first time in the history of the party and the country. once.

  At a special time and a special trip, how to observe Xi Jinping's Tibet inspection?

The three "lines" may be used as reference dimensions.

A "Red Line": Ecological Security

  "The Yarlung Zangbo River system is a rare piece of green space and green lungs, and its ecology is still very fragile. We must focus on protection, protect this'pure land', and do this well together." Xi Jinping came at the first stop of his inspection trip. To Linzhi, which is known as the "Snowy Jiangnan".

On the Niyang River that passed through the city, Xi Jinping looked at Yan Nishi from a distance and said, "Protect the life, vegetation, and thousands of mountains and rivers here."

  In fact, on-site observation of ecological protection has repeatedly become the "preferred option" in Xi Jinping's domestic inspection itinerary, and it has almost become a "must option".

In Xi Jinping's eyes, ecological security is the "red line": "We must firmly establish the concept of ecological red line" and "can't go beyond the thunder pool."

  The "ecology first" arrangement of this trip further highlights the particularity of Tibet as China's ecological security barrier.

The Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is the "Asian Water Tower" and "The Third Pole of the Earth." Improving Tibet's ecological environment is not only responsible for history and China, but also for the world.

  Because of this, Xi Jinping pointed out when he visited Tibet as early as 10 years ago that ecological protection in Tibet is an important topic, and the clear water and blue sky of Tibet should be well protected. Last year, at the Seventh Central Tibet Work Forum, Xi Jinping emphasized, " We must insist on ecological protection first." Before coming to Tibet, Xi Jinping chaired a meeting of the Central Deep Reform Commission on July 9 to study and promote the ecological protection and sustainable development of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. During this inspection, he listened to the Yarlung Zangbo River and Niyang River Basin. In the context of ecological environment protection and the construction of nature reserves, Xi Jinping once again made it clear that priority should be given to protection.

It is not difficult to see that this ecological "red line" runs through.

  "Strictly observing the ecological red line in Tibet has strong practical significance and far-reaching world significance." said Chen Pu, deputy director of the Institute of Economic Strategy of the Tibet Autonomous Region Academy of Social Sciences.

A "lifeline": national unity

  "National unity is the lifeline of the people of all ethnic groups in our country." This "lifeline" that Xi Jinping has emphasized several times has become another focus of his trip to Tibet.

  In Gala Village, he praised it as "the place where the flowers of ethnic unity and progress bloom"; in the specialty commodity store on Barkhor Street, he asked about the protection of Tibetan culture; in the Tibetan People’s Hall, he watched the ethnic group together with cadres and masses of all ethnic groups. Theatrical performances……

  "To promote the high-quality development of Tibet, we must insist that all development should be endowed with the meaning of national unity and progress, should be endowed with the meaning of improving people's livelihood and uniting people's hearts, and should be conducive to enhancing the sense of gain, happiness, and security of the people of all ethnic groups." Xi Jinping That said, once again clarify the relationship between high-quality development and national unity.

  The outside world has noticed that, including this trip to Tibet, Xi Jinping has visited minority areas in three consecutive domestic inspections, and they have all talked about this topic.

  In April this year, in Guangxi, the autonomous region with the largest ethnic minority population in China, Xi Jinping asked for a new path in promoting high-quality development in border ethnic areas.

In June, in Qinghai, where the ethnic minority population is close to half of the province's total population, Xi Jinping pointed out that industrial cultivation and enterprise development should be better coordinated with mass employment, rural revitalization, and ethnic unity.

Why is this relationship emphasized so much?

  Zhang Yongpan, a researcher at the Chinese Institute of Frontier Studies of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, pointed out that special natural geography and historical factors have determined that the development of ethnic regions is the focus and difficulty, and ethnic unity and progress are inseparable from the development of ethnic regions.

"At present, the promotion of ethnic unity and progress requires high-quality development. This is also the focus and focus of work in Tibet and all ethnic regions."

  Just like Xi Jinping's previous thesis: "National unity is the cornerstone of development and progress" and "Development is the master key to solving various problems in ethnic areas."

A "happiness line": improvement of people's livelihood

  During this inspection, Xi Jinping took another trip between Nyingchi and Lhasa.

The drastically shortened travel time between the two places has become a microcosm of the improvement in people's livelihood in Tibet over the past decades.

  In June 1998, Xi Jinping, then deputy secretary of the Fujian Provincial Party Committee, led the second batch of Fujian Province’s cadres to Tibet.

According to the memories of the reporter accompanying the delegation, Xi Jinping took a car for more than 500 kilometers from Lhasa Gongga Airport to Nyingchi Bayi Town.

"The wind swept the gravel and threw it into the wild, causing the car windows to crack and crack."

  Today, Tibet’s first electrified railway, Lalin Railway, is in operation, and the shortest travel time between Lhasa and Nyingchi is just over three hours.

During this visit, Xi Jinping took a special train to observe the construction situation along the Lalin Railway.

He pointed out that the planning and construction of the Sichuan-Tibet Railway is an important measure to promote the development of Tibet and the improvement of people's livelihood.

  At the moment, the railway that Xi Jinping is riding on is being regarded by the locals as a "happiness line" for improving people's livelihood in Tibet.

  Professor Zhu Lijia of the Central Party School (National School of Administration) said that the construction and improvement of Tibet's transportation infrastructure reflects the Chinese Communist Party's people-centered development concept and the characteristics of governing Tibet in the new era.

  This time, Xi Jinping emphasized once again that we must adhere to the people-centered development philosophy, focus more on the livelihood issues of the general public concern, and "make the people of all ethnic groups have a more satisfying sense of gain, a more sustainable sense of happiness, and a more secure sense of security."

  "Continue to improve the people's livelihood in ethnic minority areas, and do well in employment, education, social security, medical care, elderly care, childcare, housing and other livelihood matters. This'happiness line' will continue to be the focus of China's national work." Zhu Lijia said .
