Beijing hiring fewer Tibetans in state jobs

As has been occurring in Xinjiang since the Cultural Revolution it would appear that the Chinese government is subtly increasing the number and relativity of Han Chinese involved in Government jobs in Tibet.

The London-based Tibet Information Network (TIN) is reported in the article as saying that "dramatic changes" in the number and relativity of Tibetans in state jobs and blames this on Beijing's "discriminating policies". TIN claims that in 2000 Tibetans held 71.6 percent of state cadre jobs in the TAR (Tibetan Autonomous Region) however, since 2000 the number has declined sharply to 49.7 percent in 2003.

Whilst Xinjiang and Tibet are nominally "Autonomous Regions" both have witnessed not only a huge increase in the Han population of the regions but also the significant infiltration of Han Chinese into important positions of administration and government. Both factors combining to increasingly dilute real control and influence by the Uygurs and Tibetans in their own affairs.

Another subtle step toward the total "sinofication" of these significant ethnic regions.
