Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, made the remarks at a conference on deploying "pairing assistance" for Tibet.

Under the "pairing assistance" model, which was initiated 15 years ago, other provinces or cities provide technological and financial support, among other things, for the development of areas where Tibetans predominantly live, namely the Tibet Autonomous Region and areas in Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu and Qinghai provinces.

Jia said the "pairing assistance" is a central government strategic initiative and is crucial to the leapfrog development and lasting stability in Tibet and Tibetan areas in the four provinces.

Jia said major projects launched to support Tibet's development should be incorporated into the national social and economic development plan for the next decade, which is currently being compiled.

He also said the fight against the separatist forces led by the Dalai clique should be deepened so to sustain social stability in Tibet and Tibetan ethnic areas.
