Tibet has been under the administration of the Central Government since the Yuan dynasty (1271-1368 AD) and has long been an inseparable part of the Chinese nation. In the Tang (618-907 AD) and Song dynasties (960-1279 AD), Tibet was called “Tubo” and then renamed “Usi Zang” in the Yuan and Ming (1368-1644 AD) dynasties. During the Kangxi period of the Qing dynasty (1644-1912 AD), it was renamed “Tibet” , the name it is known by today.
Tibet was peacefully liberated on May 23, 1951 after the founding of New China and the Central Government began its full and direct jurisdiction over Tibet in 1959. The Tibet Autonomous Region was established in 1965, which opened a new chapter in the management of Tibet, keeping up with modern developments. On December 23, 2019, Tibet announced that it had basically eliminated absolute poverty and completed its mission of overall poverty alleviation.
