BEIJING, July 19 (People's Daily) -- Tibetans from all walks of life gather together to take part in a grand celebration today, marking the 60th anniversary of the peace liberation of Tibet.

The peaceful liberation of Tibet in 1961 marked the unification of the Chinese mainland. Millions of Tibetan serfs stood up and became the master of their fate, creating a new era of the prosperity and development in the region. Tibet nowadays is in the best period of development in terms of economic growth, social development, culture, livelihood, national unity and religious harmony.

The Qinghai-Tibetan plateau has witnessed unprecedented changes over the past 60 years, achieving a historical breakthrough in terms of its social system and eco-social development. During the 60 years, more than 95 percent of serfs and slaves were lifted out of the feudal serfdom and became the master of their fate.

Over the past 60 years, production output and the average personal incomes of farmers and herdsmen have increased dozens of times over. Expressways, airports and railways were built and people's living standards were greatly improved.

Over the past 60 years, the Tibetan culture has been carried on and developed, with religious freedom respected and protected. Also over the past 60 years, the natural environment was properly handled and protected, making Tibet the world's most ecological friendly region in the world.
