China to spend 1.8bn dollars on Tibet's water projects over five years -
agency

Text of report in English by official Chinese news agency Xinhua (New
China News Agency)

Lhasa, 16 Aug - China will spend more than 11.6 billion yuan (1.8bn
dollars) on the construction of Tibet's irrigation and drinking water
projects from 2011 to 2015, local authorities said Tuesday.

The money will go to 16 categories of water programs that cover
irrigation, drinking water, flood prevention and control and hydropower,
sources with Tibet's Water Resources Department said.

The water projects will enable all Tibetan farmers and herders to get
access to clean drinking water upon completion, and more than 90 percent
of the region's rural population will have access to electricity, the
sources said.

In the first half of this year, about 3 billion yuan has been earmarked
for the water projects that include 129 programs, of which 125 are newly
constructed ones.

During the 11th Five-Year Program period (2006-2010), about 7 billion
yuan has been channeled into the water programs in Tibet, providing 1.62
million farmers and herders in the region with clean drinking water.
